La Gazette

THE debate on the National Kenaf and Tobacco Board Bill 2008 was deferred at the committee stage yesterday following a request by Plantation, Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Peter Chin Fah Kui on the grounds of a technicality.

Chin told the house there were some mistakes in the translation of the two sections from the Malay-to-English versions.

He said the wordings in Sections 12 and 13 of the bill were confusing and could lead to misinterpretation.

Section 12 seeks to provide immunity to government officers acting on behalf of the Board, while Section 13 allows people aggrieved by the decisions of the Board to seek legal redress.
