Submissions for a new coat of arms will have to wait.

Chairperson of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Justice, Law and Human Rights, Ashneel Sudhakar said they had not yet called in submissions for the change of Coat of Arms.

Mr Sudhakar said that the Committee was currently looking at the aspects of both the flag National Flag Protection Bill and the Coat of Arms Bill Amendment Bill.

“We are trying to relook at the provisions to see if they go in line with the submissions that we have received and we are addressing different areas such as the penalty section, the enforceability, use of Coat of Arms and the flag and that is exactly what we are looking at, at the moment in the report.”

The report will be tabled when Parliament sits next month.
