Estimated National Expenditure and Budget Votes

Each year, national departments must report to Parliament their estimated expenditure for the upcoming financial year. Parliament must then take a vote to approve or reject the various departments’ estimated national expenditure. We have uploaded the Estimated National Expenditures for the Departments of Environmental Affairs, Water and Sanitation, Mineral Resources, Energy and Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, all of which were approved by Parliament in the first half of 2016.
