According to informed sources some party leaders have stated that it is not possible to hold the debate without knowing what has been said in the commission report. Leaders representing the Joint Opposition and JVP had voiced this opinion, according to sources.
Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella had then responded saying the government decided to have a debate as the Opposition and even the SLFP has asked for one. He has questioned as to whether these parties were not aware as the debate could not be held without knowing what is said in the report.
