Description/subject: HLUTTAW SESSIONS:- Pyithu HLuttaw: Pyithu Hluttaw approves emergency motion, formation of three committees: "THE second Pyithu Hluttaw’s first regular session continued for its sixth day with discussions on an emergency motion and the approval process for the formation of three committees yesterday. On their discussions on the motion calling for an immediate end to fighting in Shan State and prompt measures to be taken to aid war-affected local people, parliamentarians including Defense Services personnel representatives stressed the need of ensuring national reconciliation for building a genuine federal Union and moving towards lasting peace through cooperation of all including ethnic armed organisations. On discussions, Union Minister U Aung Min and Deputy Ministers Maj-Gen Aung Soe, Rear Admiral Myint Nwe and U Phone Swe made clarifications. Union Minister U Aung Min said that RCSS has been urged through the Joint Ceasefire Monitoring Committee to adhere to the terms and conditions of the nationwide ceasefire agreement that it signed while dealing with civilians. Regarding TNLA that has no state-level agreement with the government and did not ink the NCA, the Union Minister called for resolving conflicts through negotiations. In his clarification, Deputy Minister for Home Affairs Maj- Gen Aung Soe said that affected people have been accommodated at 17 relief camps with the provision of food, clean water and health care services. Teachers and students who fled the clashes between RCSS and TNLA have been kept at a monastery to continue learning and teaching there. The motion was approved, and an approval process for formation of three committees—the International Relations Committee, the Farmers, Workers and Youth Affairs Committee and the Ethnic Affairs and Internal Peace-making Committee— with 15 members each was carried out."...Amyotha Hluttaw: Second Amyotha Hluttaw session continues for sixth day: "THE second Amyotha Hluttaw’s first regular session continued for its sixth day, approving the formation of three parliamentary committees and proposing to create three more yesterday.

Likewise, Deputy Minister for Immigration and Population U Win Myint responded to a question raised by MP U Tin Maung Win of Mandalay Region Constituency 3 on whether there are plans to conduct a census on the Lisu population in Mandalay Region. The deputy minister replied that data on the Lisu population in Mandalay Region will be announced when approval is given after coordination between the departments and organisations concerned.

Description/subject: HLUTTAW SESSIONS:-Pyithu Hluttaw: Pyithu Hluttaw discusses proposal to suspend construction of high-rise buildings in Yangon: "THE Pyithu Hluttaw (Lower House) discussed an urgent proposal today that would suspend the construction of high-rise buildings in Yangon until they meet all existing rules and regulations for construction. The parliament put the urgent proposal on record, pledging that it would monitor the issue. Regarding the proposal, Deputy Minister for Construction U Soe Tint replied that the ministry is closely supervising buildings that are being built by the ministry to ensure that they follow the rules. However, he added, the Yangon City Development Committee has set up a subcommittee of experts to supervise the construction of buildings higher than 11 storeys. The construction of buildings across the country should follow the existing construction rules and regulations, the deputy minister said. Also at yesterday’s Lower House session, MPs asked questions about the upgrading of a school in Pakokku Township, the drinking water supply in Bilin Township, the repaying agriculture loans in Tamu District and about permissions to use virgin and fallow lands. MP Dr Soe Moe Aung from Bilin Constituency asked whether the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation has a plan to supply drinking water from the township’s Kazai Dam to the wards that face a scarcity of water every summer. Deputy Minister for Agriculture and Irrigation U Khin Zaw replied that the ministry mainly supplies irrigation water to local farms. However, the deputy minister said, the ministry will cooperate with local development affairs departments to supply drinking water to the wards if the departments report on the issue to the ministry. MP U Khin Maung Shwe from Tamu Constituency asked whether the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation has any plan to settle the issue of farmers struggling to repay agriculture loans following the loss of their farmlands to floods. The MP also asked for the ministry to arrange for virgin and fallow lands to be provided to farmers who lost their farms. Deputy Minister U Khin Zaw replied that the farmers should request their township’s bank manager to delay the deadline for loan repayment. During the last rainy season, floods damaged 7,318 acres of farmland in Tamu District, of which 4,353 acres have been recovered. At the parliament session, Minister for Health Dr Than Aung suggested that more wards be added to Yangon General Hospital, as the hospital has seen an increase in the number of patients it receives, jumping from around 25,000 in 2013 to 62,500 in 2014.".....

U Tin Maung Oo from the Shwe Pyi Thar Constituency asked if the Ministry of Immigration and Population had a plan to amend the law and bylaw on issuing of household lists and citizenship identity cards to migrants and squatters. In response to the question, the Deputy Minister for Immigration and Population replied that the ministry has no plans to amend the law and bylaw since the issue came from the internal migration of people. While currently issuing citizenship cards to migrants and squatters, the ministry is facing difficulties in getting correct and complete information and documents from migrants and squatters as they are moving from one place to another frequently. Regarding the question of MP T Khun Myat from Kalewa Constituency on fighting against narcotic drugs, Deputy Minister for Home Affairs Brig-Gen Kyaw Kyaw Tun said the government adopted a 15-year plan from 1999 to 2014 for the elimination of drugs and adopted a five year plan from 2014-2015 to 2018- 2019 for the elimination of the production and use of drug, stepping up its efforts in the fight."...Amyotha Hluttaw: Amyotha Hluttaw passes two bills, approves three reports: "THE Amyotha Hluttaw yesterday passed two bills and approved three progress reports submitted by committees.
