``We will get all you need to work better, contained in the 2016 approved budget,’’ it stated.

The chairman said that the committee would visit the zonal offices of the commission to inspect the available infrastructure and ensure that they have the required facilities to work with.

``We have been monitoring the activities of the commission with keen interest, especially in the area of fund recovery and we are very satisfied,’’ the statement added.
