License revocation for distilleries that breach rules on waste management

Distilleries that fail to adopt standards in discharging their waste water will have their licenses revoked, Deputy Minister for Home Affairs Maj-Gen Aung Soe said to the Pyithu Hluttaw Session yesterday.

The minister made the statement in response to a motion urging the union government to take action against distilleries that fail to observe the regulations of waste management. The ministry has already taken measures for inspection and action for negligent distilleries and officials are reviewing the outdated excise laws.

In addition, the union minister said that issuance of new licenses for distilleries has been halted since 2010. The union minister said that the motion should be taken into consideration and put into the record.

Deputy Minister for Electric Power and Energy Dr Tun Naing responded to questions concerning the electricity supply to two villages in Tangyang Township and seven other towns, saying that electricity will be supplied to the two villages depending on the budget allocation of the union government and Shan State Government.

At the Pyithu Hluttaw Session yesterday, Representative Dr Maung Thin put forward a motion expressing the concern over sovereignty, the rule of law, stability and peace after civilians were killed, injured or forced to abandon their homes due to attacks, bombings, destruction of the KIA, the MNDAA, and the TNLA and the session agreed to debate the motion in a later session.
