The EFF should be banned from wearing hard hats in Parliament because they can be used as dangerous projectiles, says ANC deputy chief whip Doris Dlakuda.

The EFF should be banned from wearing hard hats in Parliament because they can be used as dangerous projectiles, ANC deputy chief whip Doris Dlakuda said on Wednesday,

"They are dangerous, they are weapons," Dlakuda told a multi-party sub-committee making proposals for the revision of parliamentary rules.

It agreed to a proposal, despite bitter objection from EFF Chief Whip Floyd Shivambu, to include a ban on the red workers' overalls and pinafores the Economic Freedom Fighters MPs have worn in the House.

The proposals would be forwarded to the full rules committee for adoption in coming weeks.

Shivambu warned that the EFF would defy the ban, and challenge it in court in necessary.

"I think you are steering into dangerous territory," Shivambu said.

"If we do not find agreement here, we will submit it to a different process."

He told Sapa nothing would deter the party from attending the opening of Parliament in a fortnight in red overalls and domestic worker attire.
