Audit Bill to be debated next week

The Audit Bill which was presented to Parliament in April would be moved for debate next week, said MP Thushara Indunil Amarasena, at a press briefing held yesterday at the Siri Kotha. The Bill was presented to Parliament on April 3, by Minister of Lands and Parliamentary Reforms Gayantha Karunatilleka.

The Bill provides for powers, duties and functions of the Audit Service Commission and the establishment of the Office of the National Audit Office and the Sri Lanka State Audit Service. It also specifies the role of the Auditor General over public finances.

“The Bill would provide transparency in government transactions which would be easier to track down for any fraud,” MP Thushara Indunil Amarasena saaid.
