Speaker Karu Jayasuriya said yesterday it was regrettable for having to cancel parliament sessions on several occasions due to lack of quorum and said it was responsibility of both government and opposition members to maintain quorum in the House.   


He said a huge amount of money was spent to convene parliament and added that important bills and acts of ministries and government were taken up daily for debate and approval. 


He requested all MPs cooperation to make sure that parliamentary business was carried out without any interruptions in the future.
