Some MPs had requested hotel accommodation - Speaker

Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena today (19) revealed that some Members of Parliament have sought hotel accommodation due to the fuel crisis.

The Speaker told Parliament today that some MPs wanted to return home soon and required fuel.

“Otherwise they asked me to book a hotel for them to stay here,” the Speaker said.

The issue of MPs receiving fuel from the police garage in Narahenpita was taken up by Parliament this morning with some MPs severely criticising the Speaker for taking this move.

In response, the Speaker told that some MPs have made the above request.
