Pretoria - Textbooks have been delivered to all provinces, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga said on Friday.

"We are at 90%, there have been slight delays in Free State and KwaZulu-Natal, we are monitoring the situation," she said.

"We are confident that by the start of the school year all learners will have a textbook in their hand."

She said the department aimed to have one textbook per child per subject by 2014.

She said more than 50 million workbooks were distributed every year.

"We have made huge inroads into the distribution of learning and teaching support material."

Motshekga said her department spent R70m to distribute workbooks this year.
