The Parliamentary Finance Committee identified today, Monday, the most important gains for farmers after the legislation of the Food Security and Development Law, and while it confirmed that it would rewrite it through tables specifying the exchange sections, it stressed that it would not make any judgments and additions that affect its application.
Member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Nazim Al-Shibli, said, "The committee continues to hold its meetings to complete the draft law on food security and development, as it is related to the life and needs of the citizen, and the law will concern two sectors: trade and agriculture, and the need to support them because they affect food security."
He added, "The Finance Committee met with the relevant ministers and officials in order to identify the most important paragraphs related to the supply of food supplies, the payment of farmers' dues, and the purchase of the wheat crop."
Speaking about the most important gains achieved for farmers, he stressed that "the law stresses the payment of farmers' dues within a day or two after the delivery of the crop and there will be no delay, and the law will pay all previous dues and also for the current season."
He pointed out that "the current financial abundance achieved from the increase in oil prices needs a legal cover for the disbursement of funds under the Food Security Law, while there will be an entitlement to the oil-producing governorates under the petrodollar item."
He stressed that "the Finance Committee will not add jurisprudence and paragraphs that deprive the law of its content and affect its application, and it will be applied until the end of this year and will rewrite the law through tables specifying the exchange sections and what each section needs."
