Each MP was provided with a laptop on their desk in the House from today to provide them an efficient service, Speaker Karu Jayasuriya informed Parliament.

He said the computers had been provided by the Chinese Parliament under the E- Chamber project.

He said MPs in the House would be able to access the internet and information on legislature, acts and bills presented by MPs, questions and answers asked by MPs, information regarding the questions to be asked, reports on committee meetings, Hansards, Order Paper and private details of MPs.

    Good. Now in future if an MP wants to speak he has to ask permission via Internet giving the details about the subject. Most of the JOs wont be able to do so. via DM Android App

    This is useless. Provide laptops or desk tops to all wards in Public Hospitals so that it is easy for Doctors to check on all reports ordered where results must be put in the system. This way there is no delay in accessing reports

    totally unnecessary expense. These MP's are paid to buy their own. I should be checked who is the supplier of these laptops and whetehr tender procedure has been followed . I am sure a Govt MP or minister must be behind this. And theyr talk of the country being bankrupt. A set of jokers

    Most probably most of them will use laptop for their nefarious activities during the parliament sessions as well. Best is get parental lock activated so only they can't use adult sites.

    The question is whether they can write or read they are capable of posting photos selfies etc on face book.good luck to these idiots who robbed tax payers monies.

    Rajitha Wednesday, 23 August 2017 08:26 AM

    Just yesterday I read an article which said 96 MPs do not have even passed the OLs. Probably they will now look at porn or access FB Gossip pages during parliament sessions!
