Family members of the MPs allowed to visit the Parliament amidst the crisis

It has been decided to give the family members of the Members of Parliament the opportunity to visit the Parliament from the 1st of next month. This decision has been taken after considering the requests received from a number of new Members of Parliament representing the present Parliament.

Visitors were barred from entering the Parliament complex due to the covid risk.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs of Parliament have instructed the Canteen Division to keep the guest dining room open for the family members of the Members of Parliament who visit Parliament. Visitors to Parliament from tomorrow will also have the opportunity to taste a Parliamentary meal.

It is noteworthy that the guest dining hall is also open to the family members of the Members of Parliament, despite proposals from the Members of Parliament themselves to close the dining hall at a time when the country is facing a crisis.

Only those who have received all three doses of the covid vaccine and have been fully vaccinated are allowed to enter the Parliament complex.

Meanwhile, Parliamentary authorities are focusing on reopening the Guest Gallery and the Public Gallery on both sides of the House. Chief Serjeant-at-Arms Narendra Fernando says the galleries will be open to a very limited number of people.

Only the Media Gallery is currently open.
