Chair, I move without notice:
That the Council -
1) notes the opening of a newly refurbished tuberculosis unit by acting Premier Grizelda Cjiekella at West End Hospital in Kimberley;
2) further notes that the West End Hospital TB unit, which previously accommodated 30 beds, was revamped and upgraded and this led to its capacity being increased to 70 beds; and
3) takes this opportunity to applaud the Global Fund, the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and the SA National TB Control Programme for making available the funding for the additional 40- bed unit.
Motion agreed to in accordance with section 65 of the Constitution.
