The 3 gazette papers that were presented for hotel projects without casinos under the strategic development projects act will be taken up for debate today and tomorrow.

The gazette with regard to the proposed hotel project by the Crown Casino owned by Australian Billionaire James Packer is also among them.

The Cabinet had granted concessions for a hotel project with gaming facilities, but it had received much objection even from some factions within the government.

Accordingly the gazettes were amended and these will be taken up for debate.

Meanwhile the UNP staged a protest against the act opposite the Lake house roundabout this morning.
