Expropriation Bill [B4-2015]: deliberations, with Deputy Minister

Date of Meeting: 03 November 2015

Chairperson: Mr B Martins (ANC)

A UDM MP wanted to know how it was possible to make reference to sections 12 and 13 of the Expropriation Act of 1975 in clause 29(1)(b) while this law had been repealed in clause 31. It seemed superfluous to make reference to an Act that had been repealed. Deputy Minister Cronin responded that clause 32(1)(b) clarified that “this Act does not apply to any expropriation initiated through delivery of a notice of expropriation prior to the date of commencement of this Act or to any consequences of any expropriation initiated or completed prior to the date of commencement of this Act”. The Expropriation Act (No 63 of 1975) was currently in operation but there will be a transition period to phase it out when implementing the new Act.
