A Cabinet Sub Committee has been appointed to take action against rice millers who bought paddy from the Paddy Marketing Board but did not process the stocks thus far.

Cabinet Spokesman minister Gayantha Karunathilaka told the media briefing to inform Cabinet decisions held in Colombo today that minister of Special Project Dr. Sarath Amunugama will chair this Subcommittee.

Meanwhile, Joint Cabinet Spokesman Minister Rajitha Senarathna said that the Prime Minister was unaware of the circumstances behind the tyre factory when he participated recently at its foundation laying ceremony at Wagawatta in Horana.
