The full report is the Portfolio Committee’s Report Resolutions and Recommendations, which will then be considered by the National Assembly and ultimately Cabinet. The Portfolio Committee on Environmental Affairs having conducted the “Colloquium on Captive Lion Breeding for Hunting in South Africa: Harming or promoting the Conservation Image of the Country”, held on 21 and 22 August 2018.
