The health white paper is expected to be tabled in the Dewan Rakyat today.
According to the order paper published on the Parliament website, Health Minister Dr Zaliha Mustafa is expected to move a motion to table the white paper after the winding-up session for the debate on the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia’s annual report.
Seventeen MPs debated the report before the sitting was adjourned yesterday, while five more will resume the debate before the winding-up session today.
On June 10, Zaliha confirmed that the health white paper which includes a comprehensive policy on reforming the health system in stages over 15 years had been approved by the Cabinet for tabling in Parliament.
Meanwhile, during today's question-and-answer session, Pang Hok Liong (PH-Labis) will ask whether the government intends to extend social protection to the B40 group and allocate vouchers to recipients of the Rahmah Cash Contribution (Sumbangan Tunai Rahmah) to participate in the protection plan.
Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad (PH-Kuala Selangor) is scheduled to raise a question on whether the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission will be placed under the supervision of the Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission to ensure effective disciplinary control and improve the commission's integrity.
Several questions will also be posed to the youth and sports ministry, including from Doris Sophia Brodi (GPS-Sri Aman) about the ministry's efforts to look after the welfare of veteran athletes, especially Paralympic athletes.
Ahmad Fadhli Shaari (PN-Pasir Mas) meanwhile will ask the ministry to state its long-term plan to expand access to sports and recreation facilities to create a work-life balance for the people.
The Dewan Rakyat sitting, scheduled to sit for 11 days, will end tomorrow.
