House Chair, if the report is "noted", it allows the portfolio committee to further deliberate on the report. Parliament cannot "adopt" the report, particularly when it comes to provincial visits, because the portfolio committee has to request the department to come and respond to the issues ... [Interjections.] ... in terms of the outcome of the findings of the portfolio committee before the report is adopted by the House.
Secondly, you cannot call a division on a "noted" report. I really want to appeal to the members of this House, particularly the Whips, to go and read the Rules of Parliament so that they can understand clearly the difference between the noting of a report and the adoption of a report. Thank you, House Chair. [Interjections.] [Applause.]
