Thank you very much, hon Minister Baloyi. Hon members, you will notice that we have come to the sixth question and therefore Rule 246(4) kicks in. This Rule clearly explains that a Minister can be asked only six questions. Therefore, any question that comes after question number six will be dealt with differently. The Minister has answered all the questions he was allowed to in terms of the Rules of this House. Thank you very much, hon Minister, for your time and the responses you have provided.
We shall therefore proceed to question 78. In doing so, we welcome Deputy Minister Dlodlo. I don't know whether it is the first time ... [Interjections.] It's not her first time here, but is it not her first time for answering questions in her current position? [Interjections.] Not? In any case, you are heartily welcomed. You may proceed with the question asked by the hon Themba.
