Ms G M MANOPOLE: Chair, really I’m worried … [Interjections.]

The MINISTER OF WOMEN IN THE PRESIDENCY: I will do it but … [Interjections.]

Ms G M MANOPOLE: I’m raising a point of order saying that hon Hattingh is being consistent. Yesterday himself … [Interjections.]

The HOUSE CHAIRPERSON (Mr A J Nyambi): Can you take your seat? Hon Manopole, you are recognised.
