UNP Withdraws Bill On Access To Information

Sep 23, 2010 9:24:42 AM - thesundayleader.lk

UNP today (23) withdrew a private member’s Bill to provide for freedom of access to official information in parliament.

UNP MP Karu Jayasuriya moved to present the private member’s Bill, but the government forced him to withdraw the Bill.

Chief Government Whip Dinesh Gunawardena asked the UNP to withdraw the Bill on the grounds that the government is in the process of drafting a similar Bill.

Gunawardena said the government had a draft Bill and the opposition could discuss that.
