Joint Opposition's parliamentary group leader Dinesh Gunawardane said in Parliament yesterday that though one year had elapsed after the establishment of independent commissions, no report had been submitted to the House.

Asserting that it is a constitutional requirement, he said these commissions should report to Parliament.

Mr. Gunawardane took this up under a Point of Order. The Speaker said he was taking steps in this direction.

Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella said the previous government had crippled the functions of such commissions for ten years, but no action was taken. (Kelum Bandara and Yohan Perera)

    Leader of the House, LK - please understand that the people rejected the previous regime for such reasons and you have no excuse for delaying further unless you too are following the same foot path!

    You must be dreaming under yahapalanaya, never will.

    After his boss MR abolished Independent Commissions and he voted for that, why is he now worried. Absolute hypocrite.

    Hon. MP, you have no rights to raised this issue as during your regime there is any Independent Commission appointed.
