Parliament, Wednesday, 10 November 2021 – The Portfolio Committee on Mineral Resources and Energy will hold two public hearings on the Gas Amendment Bill [B9-2021] in Mpumalanga over the weekend.

The first public hearing will be held on Saturday, 13 November 2021, at the Mbombela Civic Centre. The second one will be held on Sunday, 14 November, at the Banquet Hall in Emalahleni Local Municipality in Witbank.

The Bill was referred to the committee by the Speaker of the National Assembly on 29 April 2021. The committee is currently processing it and public hearings are part of its public participation initiatives.
