Oral submissions to the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) ad hoc committee that deals with the Protection of Information Bill will be delayed.
Public hearings were meant to take place in Parliament next week.
Committee members were meant to look at written submissions on Wednesday and compile a shortlist of who they wanted to invite to Parliament.
NCOP member Alf Lees said interest in the information bill has been overwhelming.
He said they needed more time to examine the documents submitted by interested organisations and individuals.
“The volume of written submissions was so big that it was not possible to read them in a short space of time.”
