Who has overall responsibility for the Land Acquisition process?

The Land Directorate within Lands Authority has overall responsibility for legislation and procedures governing compulsory acquisition and the compensation due.  It must however be pointed out that the Land Directorates role is to facilitate projects initiated by other government departments/bodies in regard of which private property may be required to be expropriated.  Land acquisition on behalf of such departments is only issued on the endorsement of the Minister responsible for such department.
