Date of Meeting: 08 September 2015
Chairperson: Mr B Martins(ANC)
The Deputy Minister of Public Works presented the latest version of the Expropriation Bill, with some amendments that had been proposed by the Committee or other commentators at earlier sessions. Members firstly wanted to clarify whether this Bill was not preventing other spheres of government from exercising expropriation powers, and the Deputy Minister clarified that any such processes would have to be in line with legislation and following the precepts of Chapter 3 of the Bill. That chapter deals with the investigation facts; and set out how the expropriating authority investigated the feasibility and desirability of proceeding with the expropriation.
