Bond commission report to House tomorrow Featured

The report of the bond commission will be referred to Parliament tomorrow (17), said the Presidential Secretariat.

This is pursuant to a request by speaker Karu Jayasuriya to the secretary to the president.

After the report was handed over to the president, there had been calls for a parliamentary debate on the Central Bank bond sale matter.

Accordingly, the House met on January 10 for a debate, but proceedings disrupted during a statement by the prime minister.

Thereafter, the speaker convened a party leaders’ meeting and said the secretary general of parliament has informed him the report would be referred to the House on January 17.
