Reading through https://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/copyright-format/1.0/#license-syntax
again, I guess the following paragraph applies here:

This is for a file that has both GPL and classic BSD code in it:

License: GPL-2+ and BSD-3-clause

So, I think for the file at hand the following is the right way to describe it:

License: GPL-3+ and Expat
