There will also be a question from Ahmad Tarmizi Sulaiman (PAS-Sik) seeking an explanation from the Minister of Agriculture and Food Industry on the government’s measures in tackling climate change which is  affecting the agricultural industry, including padi cultivation.

The focus is also expected to be on a question by Maria Chin Abdullah (PH-Petaling Jaya) to the Minister of Women, Family and Community Development on the ministry’s preparedness to expedite amendments to existing laws to make ‘sexual grooming’ a crime in Malaysia.

After the question and answer session, the meeting will continue with the debate on the Supply Bill 2022 at the Committee level for the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities and the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industry.
