COPE Chairman Sunil Hadunnetti yesterday raised a point in parliament that the respective ministers had not responded to the COPE report presented in parliament on January 24, 2019 even after 16 weeks though they should respond to it within eight weeks.  

He told parliament that according to standing orders, respective ministers should inform parliament the actions to be taken based on recommendations of the COPE report within 8 weeks.  


He said the ministers had neglected their responsibility even after 16 weeks.  


The Chairman said several institutions such as Hector Kobbekaduwa Agrarian Research and Training Institute of the Agricultural Ministry, State Pharmaceuticals Corporation (SPC), drug regulatory authority of the health ministry and Finance Ministry’s Rural Development Bank (RDB) and SriLankan Airlines were among those not responded to the 
COPE report.  


He said the Road Development Authority (RDA), Milco, Pady Marketing Board (PMB), Sri Lanka Transport Board (SLTB) and Sri Lanka Institute of Advanced Technological Education       (SLIATE) had already responded to the COPE report.  


Agricultural Minister P. Harrison said he would take steps to present the report of the Hector Kobbekaduwa Agrarian Research and Training Institute within two weeks.
