The 13th regular session of the first Amyotha Hluttaw (Upper House) held its 24th meeting yesterday, with parliamentarians approving the Presidential Security Bill.
Following the presentation of the findings of the Amyotha Hluttaw bill committee on the Presidential Security Bill, the bill was read out and submitted for MPs’ approval. Next, a progress report on the activities of the Amyotha Hluttaw was submitted to the Upper House speaker and submitted for approval.
Members of various committees read out reports, and the speaker invited MPs to sign up to discuss them.
During Q-and-A session, Deputy Minister for Rail Transportation U Myint Thein said no plan has been laid to build a rail-cum-road tunnel from Htaukkyant village in Kalay Township to the Var Bridge in Falam Township, as the construction of a 20-mile tunnel would be too costly. At the meeting, the speaker asked MPs to enlist their names if they want to discuss reports on works done by the committees in the term of the first parliament.
