A problematic situation arose during the cabinet meeting held yesterday with regard to the proposal submitted by the Minister of Home Affairs and Provincial Councils & Local Government Vajira Abeywardena requesting the approval to issue licenses for former provincial councillors to import vehicles under concessionary customs duty.

It has been reported that Minister of Finance Mangala Samaraweera was not in favour of the request.

Minister Gamini Jayawickrama Perera had expressed his views in favour of the proposal submitted requesting approval for former provincial councillors to obtain vehicles on concessionary customs duty.

The proposal had requested former provincial councillors to import vehicles under the maximum threshold of 35000 USD under concessionary customs duty.

However the finance minister had noted that a decision on the matter will be announced next week.
