400 individuals and organisations gave input on Atomic Energy Bill - Khairy

REMBAU, July 25  -- Nearly 400 individuals, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and various institutions participated in engagement sessions which were conducted by the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry (MOSTI) to get input for drafting the Atomic Energy Bill.

Its minister Khairy Jamaluddin said such engagements were important to ensure that the proposed bill would be relevant with the times, as it would replace the Atomic Energy Licensing Act 1984 (Act 304).

"This bill aims to replace the existing Act 304 as this act is seen as not up to date and needs to be replaced with a new bill that can regulate all activities related to atomic energy and anything related to radioactive materials in Malaysia,” he told reporters here today.

Khairy said this when asked about the public response to the ministry's feedback sessions for the bill, which were held from July 7 to 21.

He said the bill is expected to be tabled in Parliament later this year.

Earlier, the Rembau Member of Parliament spent more than an hour with 30 families who were affected by flash floods in Kampung Bemban here on July 13.

"Today, we handed over cash assistance, kitchen items as well as the Jalur Gemilang in conjunction with the Merdeka month," he said.
