The proceedings of the Parliamentary Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) will be open to media from today, Speaker Karu Jayasuriya announced yesterday.   


Speaker Jayasuriya said the COPE sessions will be open to media after experimenting with the new camera system which has been installed in the room where COPE members usually meet today. He invited all MPs for the experimentation of the new camera system.   


“COPE meetings will be made open to media after experimenting the new camera system from today. We expect the media to report in a responsible manner,” he said.   
UNP Member of Parliament and member of sectoral oversight committee on Education and Human Resources Development Ashu Marasnghe suggested that all sectoral oversight committee meetings should be made open to media. “I propose that all sectoral oversight committee meetings should be made open to media so that people could get to know the kind of work those committees are doing,” he said.   


The Speaker said things should be done gradually and that the focus on opening all oversight committees to media will be looked into later.
