Secretaries under pressure over supervising MPs Featured

Ministry secretaries are under pressure by ministers and top UNP figures to provide facilities to supervising MPs appointed to the ministries, reports say.

There are calls to grant office space, vehicles etc. to the UNP backbenchers supervising the ministries.

However, these requests are made orally, and there are no written ones.

Some of these supervising MPs have even requested permission to go overseas in their supervising capacities.
