Agrément South Africa Bill [B3B-2015] adoption; Expropriation Bill [B4-2015]: consideration of submissions received

Date of Meeting: 26 May 2015

Chairperson: Mr B Martins (ANC)


The Chairperson went through the A-List and verified that the amendments had been effected in the Agrément South Africa Bill [B3B-2015]. Members moved to adopt the Bill, and it was adopted.

The Committee also considered submissions received on the Expropriation Bill. The period had run from 19 April to 6 May 2015, but due to the comments made in most of the submissions received, the Chairperson believed it would be better to extend the submission period. Most of the submissions had indicated that the period was inadequate. However, some stakeholders had been able to conduct their research and make the written submissions to the Committee. Nonetheless the Department was in agreement with the Committee to extend the submission period. An additional three weeks would be added from 7 June to 30 June.
