UNP CALLS ON GOVT. TO WITHDRAW PRIVATE SECTOR PENSION BILL AND INITIATE DISCUSSIONS

United National Party Parliamentarian Dr. Harsha De Silva said that if the Private Sector Pension Bill is implemented and payments are made, on the long term,  the government will have no option but to take away a much larger component than two percent from the employer and employee.

The UNP MP further said that as a responsible opposition they call on the government to immediately withdraw this bill and initiate an independent intellectual discussion on the matter as a pre-requisite to drafting a new bill.
