Memo: Changes made to Expropriation Bill during Portfolio Committee process

To: Commodity Chamber organisations

Dear Collegues,

Herewith a summary of the changes to the Expropriation Bill.  I asked Theo to compare the version that was adopted by the Portfolio committee on Public Works yesterday, to the version that was tabled in Parliament.  The big concern now is the definition of "expropriation".  Most of our other concerns have been addressed.  The definition of "expropriation" is however a major issue.  The definition was inserted by the Portfolio committee quite late in the process (towards the end of November).  The Bill will now be debated in the National Assembly after which it will go to the relevant Select Committee in the National Council of Provinces.  We will keep on lobbying (also through BUSA) to get this definition out.

Kind regards
