Party leaders yesterday decided to debate the Hambantota Industrial Zone and the January 7 clash before the agreement was signed.   

The joint opposition and the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) called for a debate on the two matters  at last morning’s parliamentary sessions. Chief opposition Whip Anura Kumara Dissanayake said the debates should be held today and tomorrow.   
House Leader Lakshman Kiriella said the matter would be decided at the party leaders meeting.   
However the party leaders who met later after the sessions could not finalize a date while the government had assured that the debates would be held before the signing of the agreement.
