Subsidies for pure bottled cooking oil and measures to monitor and address the issue of "doctors" selling cosmetics on social media platforms will be among the issues raised in the Dewan Rakyat today.
According to the order paper published on the Parliament website, the question of whether the government intends to continue the subsidies for pure bottled cooking oil until the end of the year will be raised by Ahmad Jazlan Yaakub (BN-Machang) to the domestic trade and consumer affairs minister during the question-and-answer session.
There will also be a question from Sabri Azit (PAS-Jerai) to the health minister on the ministry's moves to deal with "doctors" who promote cosmetics on social media platforms which could cause side effects for consumers.
Azizah Mohd Dun (Bersatu-Beaufort) will ask the housing and local government minister about the ministry's actions to ensure that first home buyers are not burdened with bank loan repayment charges due to stalled housing projects post-Covid-19.
Mujahid Yusof Rawa (PH-Parit Buntar) meanwhile is expected to ask the human resources Minister about the number of employers who have allegedly failed to comply with the Minimum Wages Order 2022 which came into effect on May 1.
After the question-and-answer session, the human resources ministry is expected to table the Employment Insurance System (Amendment) Bill 2022 and the Housewives Social Security Bill 2022 for the second reading and to be debated by MPs.
The Dewan Rakyat sitting will run until Aug 4.
