New laws for the Public Performances Board

The Cabinet of Ministers is to be presented a Cabinet memorandum today seeking permission to introduce new legislation on the Public Performances Board. The memorandum has been drafted by the Mass Media and Information Ministry and the Cultural Affairs Ministry.

The main aim is to monitor quality and the sense of balance in teledramas, commercial advertisements, musical videos and concerts telecast on private electronic media channels.

The Cabinet memorandum states that the contents of some of the programmes on radio and television channels harmed the country’s culture and morals.

The Media Ministry and the Cultural Affairs Ministry have also stated that there have been many complaints about the use of Sinhala and Tamil in the private media and that attention should be paid immediately to resolve these issues.
