Govt. Preparing Right To Information Bill

Jun 23, 2011 12:42:08 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The government today said that it is currently in the process of drafting a Right to Information Bill and that it would be presented in parliament shortly.

Acting Cabinet Spokesperson Minister Anura Priyadharshana Yapa has told the Cabinet press briefing that the government was in the process of drafting the Right to Information Bill and that it would address a large number of issues.

Yapa has added that the Right to Information Bill presented to the House by the opposition United National Party parliamentarian Karu Jayasuriya this week was defeated by the government since Jayasuriya had violated an agreement reached at the party leaders’ meeting in parliament.
