Parliamentary Question: The establishment of the Military Veterans fund


Mr D C Smiles (DA) to ask the Minister of Defence and Military Veterans:

What (a) plans are in place to utilise the R20 million allocation towards the establishment of the Military Veterans as indicated in her department’s budget for the 2010-11 financial year and (b) amount will be made available for (i) personal costs, (ii) current payments and (iii) capital costs? NW1631E


This is very detailed information, which is usually given by the Director-General to the Portfolio Committee. I am certain the Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Defence and Military Veterans should be able to arrange this.
