KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 1 — Deputy Dewan Rakyat Speaker Datuk Ramli Mohd Nor in the present day reprimanded the Legal professional-Common’s Chambers (AGC), telling the latter to make sure there are not any spelling or grammatical errors when drafting new or amending Payments.

The rebuke got here after the Federal Agricultural Advertising Authority (Modification) Invoice 2022 — which is being debated in Parliament in the present day — put ahead by the Ministry of Agriculture and Meals Trade (Mafi), contained a number of spelling errors.

“I checked with the August Home’s secretary, and the official modification is in English. But when we have a look at the English copy, some spelling will not be right.

“I’ve by no means seen somebody spell rabbit, r-a-b-b-i-t apostrophe, or is that this the identify of a brand new animal? Mafi, please take observe. Possibly in the midst of the controversy, this may occasionally come up.

“Legal professional-general, earlier than this factor comes out and is reported nationally, please test it to make sure it’s proper. The standard it appears has gone down,” he mentioned earlier than relieving the Home for lunch.

The Federal Agricultural Advertising Authority (Modification) Invoice 2022 is at present being debated in Parliament on the time of writing.

Earlier through the morning session, Cha Kee Chin (PH-Rasah) identified errors within the Malay language copy of the Invoice, accusing the attorney-general of failing to heed Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob’s request to uphold the Malay language.

“I wish to give some recommendation, possibly to not Mafi, however to the AGC as a result of I see within the Malay model of the modification, beneath Schedule 3 which lists all six livestock must be written in Malay.

“The AGC, apparently, will not be upholding what the prime minister has outlined, which was about our nationwide language, and within the Home, it’s our duty to raise the nationwide language collectively,” he advised the Dewan Rakyat.

The Malay copy of the modification, sighted by Malay Mail, noticed the third schedule record the lists of livestock in English, as a substitute of Malay.

On high of the language, there was an error on one of many livestock listed, which spelt rabbit with an apostrophe signal on the finish.
