Dreyer, Ms AM to ask the Minister of Public Works

Is he aware of any (a) transfers due but not paid over to provinces from his department and/or (b) money from his department transferred to provinces but not paid to municipalities for services, rates and taxes yet; if so, what are the relevant details in each case?


a) All transfers have been made in line with the payment schedule as approved by National Treasury. The Department is only responsible for the EPWP Incentive Grant for Provinces.

b) The devolution of the property rates fund grant to provinces as the allocated funding for property rates was phased into the equitable share in 2013/14. This therefore means that the Department does not make transfers to provinces for property rates and service charges as it is part of their equitable share.
