Nov 16, Colombo: The United Kingdom today deplored the violence unleashed by some lawmakers of the current Sri Lankan government today in parliament against the opposing MPs and the Speaker.

British High Commissioner to Sri Lanka and Ambassador to Maldives James Dauris, said all Sri Lankans today witnessed deplorable behavior by some members of Parliament, unbecoming of MPs belonging to the noble institution.

"Voters across Sri Lanka elected Members of Parliament to do an important job. But today Sri Lankans have again seen deplorable behaviour by some MPs, unbecoming of them and of their noble institution.

British High Commissioner James Dauris said no parliament can perform its role, when its own members prevent it from doing so.
