DAMASCUS, (SANA) – The People's Assembly held a regular session on Tuesday chaired by Speaker Mohammad Jihad al-Lahham, during which the Assembly discussed a bill on regulating the work of the Dentists Syndicate.
The Assembly members differed on a number of issues regarding this bill, such as whether the Dentists Syndicate should be completely independent from the Health Ministry or if it should be correspondence between them, and so the bill was returned to the services committee for further study.
Assembly member Wael Melhem called for improving health services in Homs province and having Assembly members participate in national reconciliation committees in provinces, in addition to stressing the need to look after the families and relatives of martyrs.
For his part, Health Minister Dr. Saad al-Nayef said that he's prepared to receive all complaints and queries from the Assembly members on the health sector and that he will respond to them as soon as possible, noting that SYP 200 million was allocated to have Ibn al-Walid Hospital in Homs provide more complete services.
The session was adjourned until 12 PM on Wednesday.
