Each committee will hold one meeting that will be open to the public on Tuesday or Wednesday [see details of day, time and venue below].  This meeting will be to analyse the Budget proposals with the assistance of officials of the Ministries concerned and invited stakeholders.  This meeting will be open to members the public, but as observers only, not as participants.  Members of the public may, however, make written submissions for consideration by the committees, which should be either delivered to Parliament or emailed to clerk@parlzim.gov.zw, . marked for the attention of the appropriate committee.

Thereafter each committee will meet in closed session to deliberate and prepare its report.  These meetings will be on Thursday 11th and Friday 12th December, and may continue on Monday 15th and the morning of Tuesday 16th if more time is needed to complete the reports.
