As part of the People’s Budget Campaign (PBC), largely through our affiliation to the Financial Sector Campaign Coalition and SANGOCO, the Black Sash wishes to endorse the detailed submission of the People’s Budget Campaign. Our inputs in this Submission therefore are supplementary and additional. Indeed it has been the PBC that has, for several years been calling for the tabling of an appropriate Money Bill. The tabling of this Bill has taken an inordinately long time. In our view, this is largely because the National Treasury did not table an appropriate Bill, after the first Draft Bill was referred back to them 11 years ago. It is within this context that we welcome the proposed legislation.
