100 000 submissions on NHI Bill received
23 October 2019
The Portfolio Committee on Health has received about 100 000 submissions on the controversial National Health Insurance (NHI) Bill, but is yet to read one.
To boot, there is about a month left for submissions.
At a press briefing on key items on Parliament's agenda with chair of chairs Cedric Frolick, chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Health Sibongiseni Dhlomo said members of his committee were sacrificing their weekends to attend public hearings across the country. Mpumalanga is first up this weekend.
He said the Western Cape would be the last province in February before the State of the Nation Address (SONA).
