Objective of the Programme

The objective of these public consultative hearings is to get public feedback from members of the public on the two Bills under discussion.

All stakeholders are encouraged to attend the meetings closest to them and share their views on the respective Bills with MPs on the Portfolio Committee. 

Attendance at the Public Hearings

Interested groups and organisations and members of the general public are invited to attend these public hearings and give members of the Portfolio Committee their views on the Bills.

At the beginning of each public hearing, the chairperson will explain the procedure to be followed.

If you want to speak at a hearing, it will be helpful if you notify the Parliamentary officers in attendance before the hearing, if possible, so that they can notify the chairperson to call on you.  Backing up an oral presentation with a written submission is also acceptable.
