The official land deed of the Sri Jayawardenepura Parliament complex is to be presented to speaker Karu Jayasuriya by Minister Gayantha Karunathilaka this evening. So far, the parliament only possessed a Thamba Sannasa – a royal edict written on a copper plate. The Thamba Sannasa had been awarded on April 29th 1982.
The total area of the Parliament premises, which was 12 acres 1 rood and 32 perches in 1982, had extended over the time, and the new deed includes all the surrounding areas. Survey activities pertaining to the land had been carried out during the past few months.
