Sri Lanka's Prime Minister Ratnasiri Wickremanayaka said last month, at a ceremony in Colombo that the motion would be debated on July 16, 17 and 18.

"It is very difficult to accommodate the UNP's request as the national census is scheduled to be held on July 17 and the parliament will not be in session on July 17 and 18" Mr.Pathirana informed the House.

"The United National Party is yet to announce its stand on government's decision ", parliamentary sources said.
