Minister to Can Broadcasting Bill

Communications Minister tells civil society bodies and the COSATU that the department is committed to scrapping the controversial Public Service Broadcasting Bill

Communications Minister, Roy Padayachie, has told civil society bodies and the Congress of South African Trade Unions that he is committed to scrapping the controversial Public Service Broadcasting Bill and initiating a review process which will start from scratch with public consultation.

Padayachie’s comments come after the Democratic Alliance’s appeal to the minister not to hold discussions on the existing bill, which never went through a white paper process or having involved any public consultation.

In the same vein, SOS: Support Public Broadcasting spokesperson, Kate Skinner, who met the Minister last week, has been quoted as saying that, "The minister has said a white paper on the broadcast review process will be produced and then new legislation will be drafted."
