JOHANNESBURG - Under pressure to conclude the keenly watched the land reform process, the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Land Reform says the tabling of the bill is a milestone.

The committee says the expropriation bill will provide policy certainty in the country.

This now means the Parliamentary process to debate and pass the bill can begin in earnest.
