Laugfs Gas to continue distributions
Laugfs Gas says its operations will continue as per normal, despite reports that State Minister of Consumer Protection, Lasantha Alagiywanna, has instructed suppliers to halt distributions temporarily .
Chairman of Laugfs Gas W.K.H. Wegapitiya noted that no such official directive had been communicated to him as yet, thus the distribution and sale of gas will not be suspended.
Alagiyawanna has reportedly instructed both Laugfs Gas and Litro Gas to temporarily suspend their distribution until further notice till the smell of the odourant Ethyl Mercacaptan in LP gas reaches the prescribed level of 14 during relevant checks and inspections.
Meanwhile, Litro Gas temporarily has suspended the distribution of LP gas islandwide since yesterday (02).
