HON. ADV. CHAMISA:  On a point of order Madam Speaker.

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  Order, order, no, no, may you please wait – [AN HON. MEMBER: Ipoint of order ka!] – No, no, there is no need because he will come in and we have a supplementary question. – [HON. MEMBERS: Inaudible interjections.] – Hon. Chamisa, can you not wait so that he finishes then you raise your point of order?

HON. ADV. CHAMISA:  It is a point of order and the rules are clear.  I have a point of order.

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  What is the point of order?

*HON. ADV. CHAMISA:  Thank you Madam Speaker. The Hon. Minister is going on and on in elucidating the policies of this country.  May he please be brief or may be issue a Ministerial Statement on the matter and allow us to raise questions.  At the moment, he is touching on a lot issues that have to do with other Hon. Members of Parliament.  I thank you.

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  Order, order. As far as I am concerned, the Hon. Minister was on the right path of giving a clear explanation.  So, I will allow him to proceed.

HON. DR. BIMHA:  Thank you Madam Speaker.  The report of the committee of officials is now ready and will be subjected to scrutiny by the committee of Ministers.  Once that report is clear then Government will be directed accordingly.  I thank you.

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  The issue of a Ministerial Statement Hon. Minister, I think like what the Hon. Member was saying is also appropriate so that Hon. Members of Parliament will seek clarification and you explain – point taken Hon. Members. Hon. Mliswa!

HON. HOLDER:  Supplementary question Madam Speaker, but ndini ndabvunza mubvunzo wacho!

HON. MLISWA:  Madam Speaker, thank you very much.  I hope…

THE HON. DEPUTY SPEAKER:  Order, order may you please wait Hon. Mliswa.  Hon. Holder has a supplementary question.

HON. MLISWA:  Oh sorry Madam Speaker.
