Supreme Court decision on the revision of VAT to be announced on Tuesday; SLFP prepares for proposing amendments
General Secretary of the UPFA Minister Mahinda Amaraweera says that SLFP is preparing to present revisions for the VAT draft bill.
The Minister expressed these views to the media after participating in a ceremony held at Ambalanthota yesterday.
The revised VAT draft bill will be taken up for debate in parliament on the 10th and 11th of this month.
Deputy General Secretary of Parliament Neil Iddawala told our news team that the Supreme Court decision pertaining to the matter will be announced on 9th, and the decision will be presented in parliament by the Speaker.
Later the relevant revisions and the proposals will be discussed.
However, UPFA General Secretary Mahinda Amaraweera further noted that SLFP will support a proposal that would have the least impact on the people.
