Postpone GEG bill, let PSC hold more talks, says tobacco group
2 months ago
PETALING JAYA: A group of tobacco manufacturers has urged the government to postpone the Generational End Game (GEG) bill to give the parliamentary select committee (PSC) tasked with drafting it more time to conduct further review and consultations.
The Confederation of Malaysian Tobacco Manufacturers (CMTM) said fundamental issues in the bill should not be brushed aside in favour of rushing to pass the legislation in the upcoming Dewan Rakyat meeting.
“Stakeholder consensus is critical to ensure the bill is constitutional, implementable, enforceable and will achieve its intended health outcomes without unintended consequences,” it said in a statement.
