Speaker re­vealed this when SLPP MP Shan Wi­je­lal com­plained that he was not al­lowed to en­ter the of­fice last morn­ing.

“It was de­cided not to al­low out­siders to the of­fice which pro­vides ser­vices to the MPS at Pelawatte as a fam­ily mem­ber of one em­ployee in this of­fice was found to be COVID-19 pos­i­tive,” the Speaker said.

Mr. Wi­je­lal said he was not al­lowed into this of­fice sit­u­ated in front of the Min­istry of Education in Pelawatte.“i had to wait for some time to ob­tain the ser­vice I re­quired as I was told that the As­sis­tant Sec­re­tary-gen­eral had or­dered not to al­low any­one in­side the of­fice. Maybe they did not recog­nise me as I was wear­ing a face mask,” the MP said.

Mean­while, a press state­ment from the Par­lia­ment me­dia of­fice said that the of­fice which pro­vides ser­vices to MPS comes un­der the Min­istry of Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion, Pro­vin­cial Coun­cils and Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment.
