Economic Planning Unit (EPU) under PM Department has failed in its duties to Parliament to provide answer to Questions No: 30 during Questions Time. It was a very simple question concerning the New Economic Model with the specific reference to a piece of land belonging to the Health Institute in Bangsar. I have made several requests to the department in Parliament which handles Parliamentary Questions for answer to my said question but the officer in the EPU can only promise to send but didn’t bother to fulfill. I have raised the matter twice in Parliament this afternoon. The Deputy Speaker ordered the officer concerned in PM Department to provide the answer but the order was totally ignored. I didn’t know that this particular question is so sensitive! Since the officers in the EPU treat Parliament with contempt, I shall raise the matter again tomorrow before the Budget was presented by the PM. Lets see what the PM is going to say about it. Below is the Question No:30: Tuan Wee Choo Keong [ Wangsa Maju ] minta Perdana Menterimenyatakan jumlah keluasan tanah, aset kerajaan, jumlah projek-projek di Wilayah Persekutuan serta nilainya (seperti tanah Institut Kesihatan di Bangsar) yang telah di “monetized” sejak tahun 2003 hingga 30 September 2010 dan apakah dasar kualiti hidup dalam Model Ekonomi Baru (MEB) yang menjamin perlestarian kehijauan, isu pengangkutan dan kepadatan kependudukan yang selesa dapat di jamin melalui MEB?
Tuan Wee Choo Keong [ Wangsa Maju ] asks the Prime Minister to state the total land area, government properties and total projects involved in KL and their value (like the land in Bangsar belonging to Health Institute) that have been monetized since 2003 until 30 September 2010 and what “quality of life” embedded in the New Economic Model (NEM) such as green environment sustainability, transport management and population density can be guaranteed through NEM?
