Minister Dalas Alahapperuma says, school uniforms for the year 2020 will be provided at the commencement of the new school term.
The Cabinet of Ministers will be enlightened on this move, when they convene tomorrow.
The third term of the 2019 academic year ends in a few days.
The Minister expresses his disappointment, on steps not being taken, to provide school uniforms before the December vacation.
A complaint had also been lodged with the Presidential Commission of Inquiry alleging that the government incurred an additional cost, due to vouchers being issued instead of school uniform material, during the previous administration.
Thereby, a decision had not been taken, on whether to issue vouchers or school uniform materials, for the next school year.
