Description

Parliament has a threefold mandate that is articulated in the Constitution and these are: conducting oversight of the Executive, Making legislation and conducting public participation. Public hearings are considered to be one of the most effective mechanisms of ensuring enhanced public participation in the making of laws by Parliament. The Constitutional Court in the landmark judgement of Doctors for Life emphasised the constitutional obligation of Parliament to facilitate public involvement.

It is against this background that the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Environmental Affairs (the Portfolio Committee) will be conducting the public hearings on the Marine Spatial Planning Bill (the Bill) [B9 – 2017] on Monday, 31 July 2017. The public hearings would ensure that those who will be impacted by the proposed legislation would have had an opportunity to be heard prior the conclusion/passing of this legislation by Parliament.This Bill was tabled in Parliament on 13 April 2017 and referred to the Portfolio Committee for processing.
