The section provides, "The Minister shall, by order, appoint a day." This power rests solely with the Minister and we think it should be not just the Minister's call but that it should be done on the recommendation of the governing body or that there should be some mechanism within the institutes themselves to indicate that they are ready for dissolution. This section does not allow for that. I will flag now that the same objection applies to section 10.
