Bina kekuatan perkukuhkan diri;
Wanita berwibawa negara perkasa.


Program di bawah Sektor Pengupayaan dan Pemerkasaan Ekonomi Wanita ini
adalah bertujuan meningkatkan penglibatan wanita dalam pelbagai sektor ekonomi
untuk menjana dan meningkatkan pendapatan dan taraf hidup keluarga. Sehubungan

jaringan kerjasama dengan agensi-agensi kerajaan seperti Jabatan Agama Islam
Sarawak (JAIS), Jabatan Tanah dan Survei, Pihak Berkuasa Tempatan, Unit

Di harap Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi N37-Dudong yang mengemukakan soalan
tentang perkara ini khususnya berkaitan dengan ibu tunggal mengambil perhatian
tentang langkah-langkah yang telah disebutkan tadi bagi memantapkan institusi
keluarga. Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat dari Dudong: .Falling in love, and
falling out of love. is beyond this ministry’s control but if YB from Dudong has a formula
to address this issue we will be more than happy to study its feasibility.

Sektor Kesihatan

Bertunjangkan .Wanita Sihat, Asas Kesejahteraan Keluarga”, LPPKN dan Biro
Wanita terus memberi keutamaan kepada bidang kesihatan reproduktif. Pada tahun

2012, LPPKN dan kerjasama Biro Wanita telah mengadakan .Program Gempur Subsidi
Mamogram. ataupun singkatannya GSM dan .Pemvaksinan Human Papillomavirus.
atau HPV untuk golongan remaja wanita yang berusia 18 tahun secara percuma.
Program Gempur Subsidi Mamogram
LPPKN Sarawak mensasarkan seramai 5,200 wanita untuk menjalani ujian
mamogram dalam tempoh Januari hingga Jun 2012. Untuk mencapai sasaran ini,
kempen GSM iaitu Kempen Gempur Subsidi Mamogram telah dilaksanakan oleh
LPPKN bersama Kementerian Kebajikan Wanita dan Pembangunan Keluarga di seluruh
negeri Sarawak. Sehingga April 2012 iaitu empat bulan pertama tahun ini, seramai
4,843 orang klien telah menjalani ujian mamogram sementara 3,253 orang lagi adalah
dalam senarai menunggu untuk ujian mamogram dalam bulan Mei sehingga Julai 2012.
Tuan Speaker, ini adalah peningkatan yang sangat membanggakan berbanding
pencapaian empat tahun yang sudah iaitu dalam bulan Mei 2007 hingga Oktober 2011,
kita hanya mencapai 2,405 klien tetapi tahun ini kita dapati that in the first, Tuan
Speaker, the number of women undergoing mamogram examination in the first four
months of this year is doubled of what has been achieved in four years.
Sektor Kepimpinan dan Pembuat Keputusan
Penyertaan wanita dalam perkhidmatan awam negeri Sarawak. Statistik
menunjukkan peratusan penjawat awam wanita bagi Gred 41 iaitu gred permulaan bagi

19% bagi Gred 52; 12.1% bagi Gred 54 dan 10.0% bagi Gred JUSA. Sekiranya
penjawat awam yang berada pada Gred 54 dan JUSA dianggap sebagai kumpulan
membuat keputusan, decision makers, maka peratusan penjawat awam wanita yang
berada dalam kumpulan tersebut hanyalah 11%.
Sehubungan itu, dalam usaha merealisasikan dasar Kerajaan untuk mencapai
30% wanita diperingkat membuat keputusan pada tahun 2015, Kementerian ini akan
meneruskan program–program dan penyebaran maklumat bagi tujuan meningkatkan

diwujudkan di semua Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat Bahagian. Hasil kerjasama
daripada agensi-agensi berkepentingan, OSRC telah dapat memendekkan tempoh

khususnya di peringkat prasekolah dan tadika, Majlis Pembangunan Pendidikan Awal
Kanak-Kanak Sarawak telah menggubal dan mewujudkan Manual Standard Kualiti

Dewan Bahasa Dan Pustaka Cawangan Sarawak
Tuan Speaker, sebagai Negara yang berdaulat dan merdeka, Malaysia telah
menetapkan bahawa Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan. Ini telah pun
termaktub dalam Perkara 152 Perlembagaan Malaysia dan Akta Bahasa Kebangsaan
1963 (Pindaan 1967), yang menegaskan tentang penggunaan bahasa Kebangsaan
dalam majlis-majlis rasmi. Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka (DBP) sebagai badan yang
diamanahkan untuk melaksanakan fungsi yang terkandung dalam Dasar Bahasa
Kebangsaan, akan terus bergerak aktif untuk melaksanakan program yang dapat
meningkatkan martabat Bahasa Kebangsaan sebagai bahasa yang menjadi asas
perpaduan antara kaum, bahasa ilmu dan berfungsi sebagai penggerak pembangunan
jati diri bangsa.
Tingkap papan kayu bersegi;
Sampan sakat di Pulau Angsa;
Indah tampan kerana budi;
Tinggi darjat kerana bahasa.


Tuan Speaker,dalam melahirkan masyarakat yang bercitra Malaysia dan
berwatak Nasional, usaha perluasan penggunaan Bahasa Kebangsaan yang baik, indah
dan santun, akan terus dipergiatkan. Sehubungan itu, untuk kakitangan kerajaan
Pekeliling Bilangan 9 Tahun 2011 bertajuk; “Panduan Penggunaan Bahasa Kebangsaan
Dalam Perkhidmatan Awam”, sudah pun diedarkan dan dikuatkuasakan.

Dalam usaha memasyarakatkan penggunaan Bahasa Kebangsaan dan
pembinaan jati diri dalam golongan remaja dan masyarakat di negeri ini, Dewan Bahasa
Pustaka akan terus terlibat dalam penganjuran beberapa program antaranya ialah
Forum Remaja, Forum Pelajar, Dekon, Wacana, Diskusi dan Syarahan Eksekutif.
Kesemua kegiatan ini bermatlamat untuk membentuk nilai jati diri dalam kalangan
generasi muda supaya berketrampilan dari segi aspek budi bahasa dan rasa cinta
terhadap Bahasa Kebangsaan. Untuk tahun 2012, selain melaksanakan 230 aktiviti
kebahasaan dan kesusasteraannya sendiri, Dewan Bahasa Dan Pustaka Cawangan
Sarawak juga akan bekerjasama dengan pelbagai agensi-agensi kerajaan dan
pertubuhan bukan kerajaan di beberapa Bahagian.

Selain itu, Dewan Bahasa Dan Pustaka Cawangan Sarawak juga terlibat dalam
pendokumentasian bahasa-bahasa peribumi Sarawak melalui program penyelidikan.
Pada tahun 2011 sehingga April 2012, DBPCS telah menyediakan manuskrip berikut

Respons Kepada Soalan-Soalan Ahli-Ahli Yang Berhormat
Tuan Speaker, saya ingin memberi respons kepada isu-isu yang diutarakan oleh
Ahli-Ahli Yang Berhormat semasa membahas Usul Penghargaan Atas Ucapan
Pembukaan Tuang Yang Terutama Yang di-Pertua Negeri.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi N.70-Ba‘Kelalan, Kementerian
Pelajaran Malaysia (KPM) sememangnya mempunyai garis panduan tentang
penubuhan persatuan agama bukan Islam di sekolah-sekolah dan penubuhannya perlu
mematuhi garis panduan yang telah ditetapkan seperti dalam Surat Pekeliling Ikhtisas
Bilangan 2/2011 yang dikeluarkan pada 18 Mac 2011.
Berhubung dengan penggunaan Bahasa Melayu, adalah dimaklumkan bahawa
perluasan penggunaannya di Sarawak tidak pernah meminggirkan fungsi bahasa-
bahasa lain seperti yang telah dimaktub dalam Akta 161, Bahagian XXIIA (22A)
Perlembagaan Persekutuan. Penggunaan Bahasa Melayu di Sarawak adalah bersifat
untuk mendukung fungsi Bahasa Kebangsaan dan Bahasa Rasmi yang termaktub
dalam Perlembagan Persekutuan Perkara 152 dan Akta 32 iaitu Akta Bahasa
Kebangsaan. Perluasan dalam fungsi bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa kebangsaan
haruslah dizahirkan juga di Sarawak untuk mendukung semangat keluhuran
Perlembagaan serta sebagai medium perpaduan di Negeri ini agar urusan rasmi dan
dasar-dasar Kerajaan mudah difahami oleh masyarakat yang berbilang etnik.

Berhubung dengan pendidikan pula, saya ingin mengingatkan bahawa
pendidikan adalah di bawah bidang kuasa Kerajaan Persekutuan. Sebagai salah satu
wilayah dalam persekutuan Malaysia, Sarawak wajar melaksanakan apa saja ketetapan
yang telah dibuat di peringkat pusat. Meskipun demikian, however, Jabatan Pelajaran
Negeri Sarawak seperti juga Jabatan Pelajaran di Negeri lain, diberi ruang untuk
melaksanakan program pendidikan ini mengikut kesesuaian dan keperluan setempat.

Jabatan Pelajaran Negeri Sarawak sentiasa berusaha memastikan anak-anak Sarawak
mendapat manfaat daripada peluang-peluang pendidikan yang disediakan.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi N.37-Dudong, sehingga kini KEMAS
mempunyai sebanyak 46 buah TASKA dengan 122 orang guru dan 725 orang kanakkanak
di seluruh Negeri Sarawak. Setakat ini, pembukaan TASKA masih diteruskan
walaupun agak perlahan disebabkan usaha Kerajaan khususnya KEMAS sepanjang
tahun 2010 hingga tahun 2012 menumpukan kepada pembukaan Taman Bimbingan
Kanak-Kanak (TABIKA) bawah Bidang Keberhasilan Utama Negara (NKRA).

Walau bagaimanapun, satu keputusan dasar telah dibuat oleh Kementerian

Kemajuan Luar Bandar dan Wilayah (KKLW) bahawa Kementerian
Sarawak
TASKA dan
akan membuat
peluasan untuk mewujudkan TASKA dengan menggunapakai spesifikasi dan kurikulum
TASKA Permata Negara. Pihak kerajaan melalui KEMAS Negeri akan
mengenalpasti kawasan-kawasan yang memerlukan pembukaan akan
memohon tanah bagi keperluan tersebut. Seterusnya pihak Kerajaan melalui KEMAS
akan memohon peruntukan daripada Kerajaan Pusat dalam
setakat pihak
di Kawasan
Rolling Plan yang akan
datang bagi tujuan mewujudkan TASKA di seluruh Negara termasuk di Negeri Sarawak.

Sebagai makluman Dewan yang mulia, ini Kerajaan melalui
KEMAS belum lagi memulakan operasi TASKA N.37-Dudong. Walau

bagaimanapun, pihak Kerajaan melalui KEMAS akan melihat keperluan untuk membina
TASKA di seluruh Negeri Sarawak termasuk kawasan N.37-Dudong.
Berkaitan dengan bantuan untuk ibu tunggal, antara program pengupayaan dan
pemerkasaan yang dilaksanakan oleh Biro Wanita adalah latihan kemahiran seperti
Program Pengupayaan dan Pemerkasaan Ekonomi Wanita (PPEW), Inkubator
Kemahiran Ibu Tunggal (I-KIT), Jejari Bestari dan Kraf Kreatif. Ibu tunggal yang miskin
dan mempunyai tanggungan pula layak memohon bantuan di bawah skim bantuan
kanak-kanak JKMNS pada kadar RM100-RM450 sebulan atau bantuan am mengikut
mana yang bersesuaian. Selain itu, ibu tunggal juga boleh dibantu melalui geran
perlancaran pada kadar maksimum RM5000 bagi menjalankan perniagaan.
Untuk maklumat Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Repok, setakat ini Kementerian
Pelajaran Malaysia belum ada perancangan untuk menubuhkan Sekolah Vokasional di
Sarikei memandangkan dua buah Sekolah Teknik, empat Sekolah Vokasional dan
sebuah Kolej Vokasional di Sarawak masih mampu menampung keperluan. Selain
daripada itu dengan terlaksananya Program Transformasi Pendidikan Negara, beberapa
matapelajaran vokasional juga turut ditawarkan di sekolah-sekolah biasa yang terpilih
bagi meningkatkan akses kepada pendidikan vokasional.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Lingga, SMK Lingga telah diluluskan
untuk dibina dalam Rancangan Malaysia Kesepuluh, Second Rolling Plan. Perolehan
tapak telah dibuat dalam tahun 2009, dan setakat ini projek tersebut adalah pada
peringkat penilaian perunding.

Tuan Speaker: Is it Point of Order or Clarification?

Y.B. Encik Chong Chieng Jen: Clarification.
Tuan Speaker: Okay.
Y.B. Encik Chong Chieng Jen: Thank you, Tuan Speaker. Thank you Honourable
Minister. Honourable Minister was saying that the school has taken reasonable action on
the faithful day of 5th January whereby the tragedy happen. My question is that what sort
of reasonable steps has been taken by the school, given that day, is there a guideline for
the school to ensure that the areas surrounding the school is safe in case or at time of
flash flood for the students to go back. On that day, has the school gone outside the
school compound to inspect, at least to look at the situation whether the level of water is
rising or the level of water is subsiding?
Tuan Speaker: I think you have made your point ... (Interruption)
Y.B. Encik Chong Chieng Jen: at least to look at the situation whether the level of

Abdullah): Tuan Speaker, pihak sekolah seperti yang telah saya terangkan tadi pihak
sekolah telah mengambil langkah yang dirasakan wajar pada masa tersebut. Usaha
telah dibuat mengumpulkan pelajar dalam satu tempat pada masa itu. Now, as I said, I

think that there is something sometimes that is beyond but what is important. We agreed
that steps must be taken to ensure that every possible measure is taken to ensure that
bahawa pelajar-pelajar dikumpul pada satu tempat dan dimaklumkan tentang what is the
situation.
Tuan Speaker: The Minister has answered. Honourable Member for Kota Sentosa, the
Honourable Minister has answered your question. No, no, no. No argument. Honourble

Menteri Kebajikan, Wanita dan Pembangunan Keluarga (Y.B. Datuk Hajah Fatimah
Abdullah): Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat DUN N.13 Batu Kawah, pemilihan
penerima Komputer 1Malaysia telah melalui beberapa proses seperti melalui senarai e-
kasih dan senarai daripada pihak sekolah sendiri bagi memastikan kelayakan penerima.
SKMM juga akan meneliti senarai tersebut melalui pengkalan data yang diwujudkan bagi
memastikan tiada pertindihan nama dan hanya satu komputer bagi setiap isi rumah
melalui nombor kad pengenalan penjaga/ayah dan alamat rumah.
Tuan Speaker: Hounorable Minister, do you give way?
Menteri Kebajikan, Wanita dan Pembangunan Keluarga (Y.B. Datuk Hajah Fatimah
Abdullah): Let me finish this.
Dakwaan yang menyatakan satu rumah menerima beberapa buah komputer
tidak berlaku dan sekiranya berlaku pihak SKMM akan memohon penerima tersebut
memulangkan kembali kerana ianya melanggar syarat-syarat penerima yang tertera di
borang “Penerimaan Komputer 1Malaysia”.
Berhubung dengan kerosakan komputer, SKMM tidak pernah melantik mana-
mana agensi kerajaan untuk membaik pulih komputer. Namun, komputer yang
dibekalkan mempunyai jaminan selama setahun. Penerima boleh berhubung terus
dengan pembekal Komputer 1Malaysia melalui nombor atau laman sesawang yang
tertera di belakang komputer tersebut.

Sekiranya pengguna tidak boleh berhubung atau tidak berpuas hati dengan
layanan yang diberi oleh pembekal komputer yang berkenaan, maka penerima boleh
membuat aduan kepada SKMM melalui Aduan SKMM di www.skmm.gov.my atau
berhubung terus dengan pejabat SKMM wilayah Sarawak.

Tuan Speaker, berhubung dengan bantuan wang ehsan dan makanan kepada
mangsa banjir, Ahli Yang Berhormat N.13-Batu Kawah didapati bahawa beliau tidak

weakness, Sir.


Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat N.25-Balai dengan
projek pembinaan SMK Sabal, pada masa ini Jabatan Sarawak
sedang menunggu keputusan daripada pihak Unit Ekonomi, Jabatan
Perdana Menteri (EPU).

Mengenai pembinaaan projek SK Telagus Jerok yang lewat jadual, pihak
Kementerian Pelajaran telah memberi surat amaran kepada kontraktor berkenaan.
Setakat ini kemajuan kerja pembinaan projek telah mencapai 80%.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi N.10-Pending, berkaitan dengan isu
SK St. Andrew, Kementerian Pelajaran telah menyalurkan bantuan sebanyak RM50,000
kepada Lembaga Pengurus Sekolah pada bulan September 2011. Selain itu, sekolah ini
dijangka akan mendapat peruntukan tambahan daripada peruntukan sebanyak RM100
juta yang telah diumumkan oleh Yang Amat Berhormat Perdana Menteri dalam bajet
2012 untuk Sekolah Mubaligh seluruh Malaysia.
Tuan Speaker, sebagai penutup saya ingin menekankan di sini bahawa Kerajaan
Barisan Nasional tidak pernah dan tidak akan menggunakan perkhidmatan dan bantuan
kebajikan sebagai alat atau modal politik. Pemberian, perkhidmatan dan agihan bantuan
adalah berdasarkan keperluan dan keinginan untuk mensejahterakan rakyat dan
meningkatkan kualiti hidup mereka tanpa mengambilkira fahaman politik, kepercayaan
agama atau suku bangsa.
Jangan disalah lantai berjongkit;
Kalau diri tak pandai menari,
Janganlah marah sambil mengungkit;
Kalau diri kurang kemahiran diri.
Based on this principle, financial assistance and welfare services are thus given
out and delivered in the spirit of uplifting human dignity, without prejudice, without malice
and without ulterior motives. I hope members of the opposition in this August House will
recognize this and refrain from making unnecessary accusation or allegation against the
noble intention of the BN Government.

Pinang muda dibelah dua;
Daun sireh enak dikunyah;
Barisan Nasional terbukti berjasa;
Kerajaan baik jangan diubah.

Pentadbiran Tanah
Tuan Speaker, Kerajaan Negeri sentiasa

pelanggan yang semakin mencabar.
Kerajaan Negeri sangat berbangga dengan pencapaian
Survei di mana Land and Survey Information System (LASIS) telah berjaya memenangi
anugerah Geospatial World Excellence Award 2012
Administration in Amsterdam, The Netherlands pada 24 April 2012. LASIS telah berjaya
mengatasi 148 penyertaan daripada seluruh dunia.
LASIS adalah sistem maklumat tanah yang mengintegrasikan empat komponen
asas dalam Pentadbiran Tanah iaitu Pegangan Tanah (Land Tenure), Nilai Tanah,
Kegunaan Tanah dan Pembangunan Tanah. LASIS adalah cetusan ilham Yang Amat
Berhormat Ketua Menteri pada tahun 1984. Anugerah ini adalah bukti kepada visi dan

of efficient land administration and land management in Sarawak. It is also a source of
motivation for the State Civil Service to work harder to enhance our service delivery in
line with our mission to become a world class civil service.

In addition to the above and through the One Day Registration of land dealings,
LASIS was used as a benchmark for other states in Malaysia to emulate in property
registration. This success has brought more visits by both national and international

Pembayaran Balik Lebihan Premium

Tuan Speaker, untuk makluman Dewan yang mulia ini, sepertimana yang telah
dimaklumkan pada persidangan yang lalu, pembayaran balik lebihan premium untuk
pembaharuan tempoh surat hak milik tanah telahpun ditunaikan oleh Kerajaan.

Sehingga hari ini, secara keseluruhannya ia melibatkan sebanyak 3,303 kes
berjumlah RM 26.1 juta yang kesemuanya telah diselesaikan. Pembayaran dibuat

melalui cek atau bayaran terus ke akaun bank pemilik-pemilik tanah yang terlibat. Pada
waktu ini, baki sebanyak 271 cek masih menunggu pemilik tanah untuk datang ke
Pejabat Tanah dan Survei Bahagian masing-masing untuk mengambil cek bayaran balik
tersebut. Ini melibatkan pemilik-pemilik tanah yang tidak membekalkan maklumat akaun
bank mereka.
Tuan Speaker untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Pelagus, Pujut dan
Pelawan, terdapat beberapa faktor yang menyebabkan kelewatan pengeluaran surat
hak milik tanah bagi projek perumahan. Antara faktor-faktor tersebut adalah kegagalan
pihak pemaju memenuhi syarat-syarat yang telah ditetapkan oleh Jabatan Tanah dan
Survei seperti:
(i) Tidak menyiapkan kerja kejuruteraan dengan sempurna yang
menyebabkan Certificate of Completion of Engineering Works tidak dapat
dikeluarkan oleh Pihak Berkuasa Tempatan;
(ii) Tidak mengembalikan semula Memorandum of Surrender and Alienation
(MOSA) kepada Jabatan Tanah dan Survei bagi mengeluarkan surat hak
milik lot pecahan individu; dan
(iii) Tidak menjelaskan bayaran premium tanah (enhanced premium) jika
ada.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Pelawan juga, surat hak milik tanah
untuk projek kediaman di Lorong RTM 13/B1, Lorong Teku 17, Lorong Teku 53, Lorong
Ulu Sungai Merah 51, Lorong RTM 13B1/D1/D3 dan Jalan Oya Lane 13 belum dapat
dikeluarkan kerana pihak pemaju belum menyempurnakan kerja kejuruteraan seperti
yang disyaratkan.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Jemoreng, program pengukuran
Kampung Tradisional merupakan salah satu program kerajaan bagi mengeluarkan surat
hak milik tanah di bawah Seksyen 18, Kanun Tanah Negeri. Program ini sentiasa
mendapat sambutan dan kerjasama yang baik daripada penduduk-penduduk kampung
di seluruh Negeri Sarawak kerana ianya menjaminkan hak milik ke atas tanah-tanah
yang mereka duduki.

Sehingga kini, Jabatan Tanah dan Survei, Bahagian Mukah telah menerima
sembilan permohonan dari Kawasan Jemoreng yang mana dua daripadanya telahpun
siap diukur dan dikeluarkan dengan surat hak milik tanah iaitu Kampung Son dan
Kampung Jemoreng. Manakala, tujuh permohonan masih dalam proses semakan
Jabatan Tanah dan Survei. Kampung-kampung tersebut adalah Kampung Sekerang,
Kampung Pulau, Kampung Baru Ismail, Kampung Baru Dagang, Kampung Tengah,
Kampung Kebuaw dan Kampung Sah yang semuanya terletak di kawasan Igan. Ini
betul-betul sah.

Program pengukuran kampung tradisional merupakan usaha Kerajaan yang
berterusan dalam mengiktiraf kewujudan kampung tradisional di Sarawak.

Tuan Speaker untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Kidurong,
permohonan bagi penggantian surat hak milik bagi Lot 173 Blok 27 Kemena Land
District telah diterima oleh Jabatan Tanah dan Survei Bintulu pada 3 Februari 2012.
Pada 26 April 2012 ianya telah dikemukakan ke Percetakan Nasional Berhad untuk
pewartaan. Selepas pewartaan, sesiapa yang berkepentingan boleh mengemukakan
bantahan dalam tempoh 30 hari sebelum penggantian surat hak milik tanah dapat
dibuat. Proses ini adalah keperluan statutori bagi melindungi kepentingan pihak-pihak
yang terlibat.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Kidurong juga, berdasarkan rekod
bin Dris Jabatan Tanah dan Survei, kawasan yang dituntut oleh Soperiyadi tidak
tertakluk kepada tuntutan Hak Adat Bumiputera yang sahih. Perkara tersebut telahpun
dimaklumkan kepada anaknya Encik Sopiyan bin Soperiyadi melalui surat bertarikh 30
Julai 2010 bagi menjawab surat yang dikemukakan oleh Encik Sopiyan bin Soperiyadi
bertarikh 5 April 2010.

Kawasan yang dituntut adalah tanah berhakmilik dan ini bermakna si pengadu
Encik Soperiyadi bin Dris menceroboh dalam tanah persendirian.

Tuan Speaker isu yang berkaitan dengan tanah Balai Ringin-Melikin yang telah
dibangkitkan oleh Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Kota Sentosa, ingin saya nyatakan di sini
bahawa tanah yang dimaksudkan tidak tertakluk kepada Hak Adat Bumiputera yang
sahih. Tanah berkenaan pada asalnya terletak di dalam Kawasan Balai Ringin Protected
Forest yang diwartakan melalui Gazette Notification No. 1416 bertarikh 18 November
1935 dan juga Sabal Forest Reserve yang diwartakan melalui Gazette Notification No.
331 bertarikh 28 November 1927. Oleh itu, pemberimilikan tanah di kawasan tersebut
tidak bercanggah dengan undang-undang dan tidak timbul isu mengenai penamatan
Hak Adat Bumiputera seperti yang digembar-gemburkan. Dalam waktu yang sama,
semua proses permohonan tanah termasuk pemberian pajakan sementara atau
Provisional Lease (PL) adalah mengikut prosidur yang jelas serta selaras dengan
peruntukan Kanun Tanah Negeri.
Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Kota Sentosa juga telah mendakwa kumpulan yang
membuat bantahan ini bersurai selepas Jabatan Tanah dan Survei memberi jaminan
akan membuat siasatan lapangan.
Ini adalah satu pembohongan serta kenyataan yang memutarbelitkan fakta.
Jabatan Tanah dan Survei telah pun membuat siasatan lebih awal dan keputusan
mengenainya turut dimaklumkan kepada pihak yang membuat protes ini. Putarbelit ini
bagi saya, adalah satu usaha terdesak untuk menutup peranan mereka mendalangi
protes dan menghasut penduduk yang terlibat. Didapati yang mendalangi dan menyertai
protes kebanyakkannya daripada luar kawasan berkenaan. Ini merupakan satu budaya
asing yang tidak sihat.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Lingga, setakat ini Jabatan Tanah
dan Survei telah menerima permohonan daripada Jabatan Agama Islam Sarawak untuk
tapak perkuburan berpusat seluas kira-kira 20 ekar di antara Kampung Maludam dan
Kampung Semarang. Tapak ini dicadang untuk kegunaan bersama oleh Kampung
Maludam, Sepinang dan Semarang. Ini bertujuan bagi memantapkan pengurusan,
pengoperasian dan penyelenggaraan hal ehwal perkuburan orang Islam di kawasan
tersebut.

telahpun di excise …(Inaudible) Apabila telah diluluskan untuk pemberimilikan ianya
telah pun di exercise daripada Forest Reserved. Kedua, memang betul, ya, PL telah
dikeluarkan lebih awal tetapi setelah adanya permasalahan yang timbul, Jabatan Tanah
dan Survei telahpun mengadakan dialog dengan mereka yang terlibat.
Tuan Speaker, untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Bukit Kota, Kerajaan
telah meluluskan peruntukan sebanyak RM2.5 juta untuk pelaksanaan Skim
Pembesaran Kampung Bukit Kota/Limpaong/Buangsiol. Pelaksanaan projek ini akan
ditender pada bulan Ogos 2012 dan pembinaannya dijangka mengambil masa 12 bulan.
Skim ini akan menyediakan 44 lot kediaman bagi menampung keperluan penduduk
setempat.
Kerajaan juga pada 17 November 2003 telah meluluskan satu tapak bagi skim
pembesaran kampung di kawasan Pandaruan yang menyediakan sejumlah 840 lot
kediaman. Projek ini dikendalikan oleh pihak Perbadanan Pembangunan Perumahan
Sarawak (HDC).
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Lingga, Lingga Central Area Local
Plan‘ telah diluluskan oleh State Planning Committee pada 6 September 1999 dan
pindaan pelan susunatur telah diluluskan pada tahun 2000 yang melibatkan cadangan-
cadangan pembangunan untuk rumah kedai, terminal bas, gerai-gerai perniagaan dan
pasar tamu. Pihak PELITA akan diarah merangka semula Pelan Pembangunan dengan
mengambilkira keperluan semasa serta menerajui pelaksanaan pembangunan bagi
kawasan Lingga dan Maludam. Pembangunan ini nanti akan dilaksanakan dengan
penglibatan bersama pihak swasta.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Lingga, setakat ini Jabatan Tanah
dan Survei belum ada menerima permohonan untuk tapak baru bagi SK Maludam.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Lingga juga, tapak SMK Lingga telah
diluluskan oleh Kerajaan pada tahun 2006. Proses pengambilan balik tanah telah
selesai pada tahun 2008. Tapak tersebut terletak lebih kurang lima kilometer dari
bandar Sri Aman dan 30 kilometer dari Pekan Lingga. Pemilihan tapak tersebut adalah
berdasarkan permohonan daripada Jabatan Pelajaran bagi mengatasi kesesakan
pelajar harian dan asrama di SMK Sri Aman, SMK St. Luke, SMK Melugu dan SMK
Simanggang.

Untuk makluman Ahli Berhormat bagi Demak Laut, setakat ini Jabatan Tanah
dan Survei tiada menerima sebarang permohonan rasmi untuk tujuan Skim Pembesaran

Kampung bagi Kampung Tabuan Melayu. Walau bagaimanapun, Kerajaan sedang
menjalankan kajian awal bagi pembangunan semula kawasan tersebut dan kawasan
sekitarnya. Kajian ini akan merangkumi perancangan pembangunan menyeluruh
termasuk penyusunan semula penempatan sepanjang tebingan sungai, kemudahan
awam serta infrastrukur untuk meningkatkan taraf sosio-ekonomi penduduk setempat.

Bagi perkara yang melibatkan Kampung Senari, permohonan untuk mengukur
kampung tersebut telahpun diterima dan kini dalam semakan Jabatan Tanah dan
Survei. Bagi kawasan Kampung Muhibbah, Pending, Kampung Tanjung Bako dan
Kampung Pinggan Jaya pula, ketiga-tiganya merupakan skim pembesaran kampung
dan telah diukur kepada lot individu. Pemilik lot tersebut bolehlah memohon untuk

dikeluarkan dengan surat hak milik tanah setelah rumah siap dibina.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Demak Laut
secara berkumpulan untuk kawasan seberang Sejingkat bagi tujuan pertanian bolehlah
juga, permohonan
dikemukakan kepada Jabatan Tanah dan Survei. Permohonan akan dipertimbangkan
berasaskan merit.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Saribas, sebanyak 20 lot daripada
Pemilik-pemilik
100 lot kediaman di Skim Pembesaran Kampung Debak Laut telah dilulus untuk
diagihkan kepada penduduk yang layak. lot berkenaan bolehlah

memohon untuk projek rumah mesra.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Kota Sentosa, keseluruhan kawasan
Isthmus dikenali sebagai Lot 1313 Block 7 Muara Tebas Land District. Lot ini telah
dikeluarkan dengan surat hak milik tanah pada 26 Februari 1997. Pemberimilikan tanah
berkenaan merupakan sebahagian daripada .payment in kind. untuk projek
pembangunan Sungai Sarawak Regulation Scheme Fasa II. Projek ini dilaksanakan
bagi manfaat dan kesejahteraan penduduk Bandaraya Kuching dan sekitarnya.
Projek Sungai Sarawak Regulation Scheme Fasa II melalui pembinaan
causeway telah meningkatkan aksesibiliti ke kawasan Semenanjung Bako dan Isthmus
serta kawasan-kawasan perindustrian utama dan pelabuhan dan kawasan Pending.
Kawasan Isthmus dahulunya hanyalah kawasan tanah paya yang tidak mudah
dihubungi.
Oleh yang demikian, Isthmus memiliki lokasi yang strategik, yang
menghubungkan pusat Bandaraya Kuching dengan taman-taman perindustrian,
pelabuhan dan lapangan terbang antarabangsa. Ini adalah kemudahan yang penting
dalam mempercepatkan proses pembangunan sesuatu kawasan. Kawasan ini adalah
kawasan .greenfield. yang luas dan sesuai untuk dibangunkan bagi menampung
keperluan pembesaran Bandaraya Kuching. Mengambil kira faktor-faktor yang
disebutkan tadi, Isthmus menjadi pilihan utama sebagai kawasan untuk dibangunkan
dengan prasarana serta kemudahan bertaraf antarabangsa.
It is the inter play of normal market forces that determine the value of land.
Therefore, It is obvious that the Opposition is just trying to manipulate the development
of Isthmus just to serve their own agenda.

Tuan Speaker, untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Pelagus, faktor-faktor
yang diambil kira dalam menentukan jumlah pampasan ada...(interruption)

Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam

Y.B. Encik Chong Chieng Jen: Thank you Tuan Speaker. As a granted that Isthmus is
strategically located, it‘s a good location. If this is such a good location, why did the

government alienated the land to CMS Group of Company instead of the Government
develope or sell it by way of open tender in the public market, in the open market? Why
is the process of open tender not adopted in the alienation of sell of land in Isthmus to

CMS Group of Company? That‘s my question.

Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
melalui payment
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Tuan Speaker, kita mengetahui kedudukan Isthmus. Dulunya ia adalah satu
pulau, macam satu pulau saja dan tak ada perhubungan pun dan kerajaan mahu agar
masalah banjir dapat diatasi dan kita telah menerima proposal daripada Syarikat yang
telahpun membelanjakan wang yang begitu banyak dengan pembinaan Sungai Sarawak
Regulation Scheme ini dan bukan dibayar melalui cash, in kind.
Sepatutnya kita harus berterima kasih adanya Syarikat begini yang sama-sama terlibat
untuk menyumbang kepada pembangunan Negeri Sarawak yang kita cintai ini.

mana faktor-faktor

tanaman pula, kadar pampasan

Tanah dan Survei dengan kerjasama Jabatan

menyatakan bahawa ramai

dan Survei juga menunjukkan kes-kes bantahan biasanya disebabkan oleh pertikaian
sempadan antara kaum yang terlibat. Terdapat dua kaedah untuk mengukur tanah NCR
iaitu :

Tuan Speaker, untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Pelagus, faktor-faktor
yang diambilkira dalam menentukan jumlah pampasan ada dinyatakan dengan jelas di
bawah Kanun Tanah Negeri. Jumlah pampasan tanah yang dibayar adalah ditentukan
dengan menggunakan Kaedah Penilaian Secara Perbandingan di
yang mempengaruhi nilai seperti lokaliti, aksesibiliti, saiz dan sebagainya akan diambil
kira dan diselaraskan dalam menentukan nilai pampasan tanah tersebut.
Berhubung dengan kadar pampasan untuk
untuk tanaman yang digunakan sekarang adalah berdasarkan kadar yang diluluskan
oleh Kerajaan pada tahun 1996. Kadar ini bagi menggantikan kadar lama yang telah
digunakan sejak tahun 1980.
Dari masa ke masa Jabatan
Pertanian akan mengkaji keperluan untuk menyelaraskan kadar pampasan tanaman
sejajar dengan keadaan ekonomi semasa serta membuat penambahan kepada senarai
tanaman jika perlu.
Dakwaan Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Krian yang
pemilik Tanah Hak Adat Bumiputera enggan tanah mereka diukur di bawah Seksyen 6
Kanun Tanah Negeri adalah tidak benar. Berdasarkan rekod di Jabatan Tanah dan
Survei, sebanyak 447 permohonan diterima setakat ini di seluruh Negeri Sarawak untuk
tujuan pengukuran di bawah Seksyen 6 Kanun Tanah Negeri. Rekod Jabatan Tanah
(a)
Pengukuran Keliling Sempadan tanah yang dituntut oleh komuniti di
sesuatu kawasan untuk diisytiharkan sebagai Rizab Gunasama
Bumiputera di bawah Seksyen 6 Kanun Tanah Negeri; dan
(b)
Mengukur lot-lot individu untuk tujuan pengeluaran surat hak milik di
bawah Seksyen 18 Kanun Tanah Negeri.

BELUM DISUNTING

21 MEI 2012

Kedua-dua kaedah ini telah dan sedang giat digunakan dalam usaha berterusan
Kerajaan untuk mengukur tanah NCR untuk didaftar dan seterusnya dibangunkan demi
faedah penduduk Bumiputera Negeri Sarawak. Kerajaan telah mengukur lot-lot individu
dan pengeluaran surat hak milik di bawah Seksyen 18 Kanun Tanah Negeri untuk
maksud pertanian dan juga lot-lot untuk kediaman. Hasilnya banyak lot individu untuk
maksud pertanian dan juga kediaman telah siap diukur dan didaftarkan.

Dokumen-dokumen seperti warta dan surat hak milik tanah adalah bukti sah bagi
menjamin hak adat bumiputera terpelihara sesuai dengan peruntukan dalam Kanun
Tanah Negeri. Pengukuran keliling melalui pendekatan Seksyen 6 Kanun Tanah Negeri
merupakan pendekatan yang lebih cepat ataupun =fast-track survey’ bagi penentuan

sempadan tuntutan hak adat bumiputera.
Manakala pendekatan pengukuran Seksyen 18 Kanun Tanah Negeri mengambil
masa yang lama untuk diselesaikan lebih-lebih lagi sekiranya terdapat pertikaian atau
pertindihan tuntutan dan faktor-faktor lain yang mungkin melambatkan kerja pengukuran
tersebut. Namun demikian, pengukuran secara individu ini akan tetap diteruskan dalam
fasa seterusnya iaitu setelah pewartaan menurut Seksyen 6 Kanun Tanah Negeri
diselesaikan.
Tuan Speaker, untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Meluan, Kerajaan
telah pun melaksanakan pengukuran perimeter NCR Inisiatif Baru di kawasan Ahli Yang
Berhormat. Sehingga kini, sebanyak tiga kawasan telahpun diukur iaitu Kawasan Jalan
Pakan/Sesco dan Jalan Pakan/Entabai, Kawasan Entabai/Entaih, Pakan dan Kawasan
Sungai Julau, Pakan yang secara keseluruhannya berkeluasan lebih kurang 12,708
hektar. Satu daripada kawasan tersebut telahpun siap diwartakan iaitu Kawasan Jalan
Pakan/Sesco dan Jalan Pakan/Entabai dengan keluasan lebih kurang 3,977 hektar.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Meluan lagi, Jabatan Tanah dan
Survei kini sedang memproses tiga lagi kawasan untuk pertimbangan selanjutnya iaitu
Tekoyong L.D, Jikang L.D, dan Melurun L.D.
Dialog di lapangan telah diadakan pada 10 Mei 2012 dan kini Jabatan Tanah dan
Survei Bahagian Sarikei masih menunggu maklumbalas daripada lebih kurang 100 buah
rumah panjang di kawasan terbabit.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Pending, lot milik Puan Mordiah
bukanlah hilang sepertimana yang didakwa. Tanah tersebut telah dipecah bahagi
kepada 2 lot baharu iaitu Lot 333 dan Lot 334 Block 6 Samarahan Land District semasa
proses pengambilan balik tanah untuk pembinaan bund and drainage scheme IADP
Samarahan Block III.
Semasa proses pengambilanbalik tanah, beliau tidak dapat dihubungi kerana
beliau tidak menduduki tanah tersebut dan tidak memaklumkan kepada jabatan tentang
pertukaran alamat beliau.

Walau bagaimanapun, sebaik sahaja kita dimaklumkan oleh beliau tentang
masalahnya, dan dengan kecekapan sistem LASIS, pihak Jabatan Tanah dan Survei
dapat mengambil tindakan untuk menyelesaikan masalah ini. Jabatan Tanah dan Survei
telah mengemukakan notis di bawah Seksyen 48 Kanun Tanah Negeri untuk
memudahkan pembayaran pampasan kepada beliau. Inilah penyelesaian kepada
masalah yang dihadapi oleh Puan Mordiah.

Tindakan Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Pending dengan menggelar pegawai
kerajaan sebagai =little napoleon’ adalah bukti jelas menunjukkan kecenderungan pihak

pembangkang untuk memanipulasi fakta dengan mengambil kesempatan dan

=memperkudakan‘ permasalahan orang kampung sebagai modal menagih simpati.

Lebih-lebih lagi pegawai tersebut tidak berpeluang membela dirinya di dalam Dewan
yang mulia ini.

Tuan Speaker, untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Lambir, satu tapak
untuk berniaga telah diluluskan di persimpangan Jalan Persisiran Pantai dan Jalan
Kampung Beraya pada 8 Oktober 2010 dan proses pengambilan balik tanah telah
diselesaikan pada tahun 2011. Kerajaan akan melaksanakan projek ini melalui
Perbadanan Pembangunan Ekonomi Sarawak (SEDC). Oleh yang demikian, Ahli Yang
Berhormat bagi Lambir dinasihatkan untuk berhubung terus dengan pihak SEDC.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Pending, pemberimilikan tanah-tanah
yang dimaksudkan iaitu Lot 4179 dan Lot 4180 Blok 16 Kuching Central Land District
merupakan sebahagian daripada .payment in kind. untuk projek penggantian jambatan
di negeri Sarawak dengan nilai keseluruhan premium menyamai RM2.4 juta untuk tujuan
pembangunan komersil. Memandangkan pemberimilikan tanah ini adalah berdasarkan
“payment in kind”, sudah tentu premium tersebut tidak dikutip. Penilaian premium ini
adalah berdasarkan kepada nilai pasaran semasa pada tarikh kontrak dimeterai.
Syarikat Flamingo Future Sendirian Berhad adalah syarikat nominee kepada
Titanium Management Sendirian Berhad yang merupakan pelaksana kepada projek
penggantian jambatan-jambatan di Negeri Sarawak.
Tuan Speaker, untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Padungan, Delta Padi
Sendirian Berhad pada asalnya merupakan syarikat usahasama di antara PELITA
Holdings Sendirian Berhad, Hii Yu Peng Enterprise Sendirian Berhad dan Dato Mohd.
Arip bin Mahmud. Setelah Dato Mohd. Arip bin Mahmud meninggal dunia pada tahun
2005, syer beliau dipindahkan kepada waris-warisnya melalui Mesti Bersatu Sendirian
Berhad.
Mesti Bersatu Sendirian Berhad memiliki 450,000 syer dari jumlah keseluruhan
3,000,000 (3 juta) syer ataupun 15% dalam Delta Padi Sendirian Berhad. Pegangan
syer Yang Amat Berhormat Pehin Sri Ketua Menteri sebanyak 17.4% dalam Mesti
Bersatu Sendirian Berhad, yang bersamaan 2.6% syer dalam Delta Padi Sendirian
Berhad. Syer ini diwarisi apabila adik beliau, Dato Mohd. Arip bin Mahmud meninggal
dunia pada tahun 2005. Syer Allahyarham Dato Mohd. Arip bin Mahmud pada mulanya
diwarisi kepada ibunya yang juga telah meninggal dunia. Disebabkan ini, maka Yang
Amat Berhormat Pehin Sri Ketua Menteri telah dilantik sebagai pentadbir harta ke atas
syer arwah ibu beliau yang telah diputuskan melalui urusan probet dan mengikut hukum
Faraid.
Oleh yang demikian, nama Yang Amat Berhormat Pehin Sri Ketua Menteri hanya
timbul dalam syarikat Mesti Bersatu Sendirian Berhad ekoran daripada urusan probet
dan hukum Faraid berikutan dengan pemergian adik dan ibu beliau. Oleh yang demikian
tanah tersebut tidak diberi milik kepada Yang Amat Berhormat tetapi melalui hukum
Faraid. Maka dakwaan yang mengatakan pemberimilikan tanah kepada syarikat yang
dimiliki oleh Yang Amat Berhormat Pehin Sri Ketua Menteri adalah tidak benar dan
mengelirukan dan ini semata-mata bertujuan politik, politik jahat.

Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin

planning and design. The Government has since 1974 commissioned six internationally
renowned planning consultants to assist in the planning of Kuching City and its
transportation system. The recommendations have been gradually implemented in
stages.

Some of the planning policies that have been recommended to guide the
development of Kuching are:

(i)
Decentralization policy to create and develop satellite centres around
Kuching for example, Tabuan Jaya, MJC, Kota Sentosa and Bandar Baru
Semariang;
24

(ii)
Regulate the development of high-rise buildings in central area of
Kuching;
(iii)
Continuous efforts to improve and upgrade roads and traffic junctions;
and
(iv)
Provisions of outer and inner ring roads.
Tuan Speaker, the city is now undergoing tremendous development and as a
result, we are now starting to experience traffic congestion. The Sarawak Government is
conscious of this and has taken the initiative to hold the Focus Delivery Lab in 2011

which is the basis to source for funds from the Federal Government. The lab identified
critical areas in Kuching that are experiencing congestion and recommended the most
appropriate and effective mode of public transport for Kuching.
Currently the city is undergoing major improvement of its urban infrastructure and
development such as construction of flyover, sewerage works and road upgrading works
which temporarily contribute to the congestion we are now experiencing in Kuching.
We will bid for funds under the 10th Malaysia Plan to improve and upgrade the
necessary infrastructure and facilities for the bus transportation system as the main
focus.
Let me remind Ahli Yang Berhormat for Padungan that traffic congestion is a
universal phenomenon and occur even in cities with well developed public transport
system. In fact, very few cities in the world can escape urban traffic congestion.
Tuan Speaker, dalam menuju... (Interruption)..Ya?
Y.B. Encik Wong King Wei: Thank you, Minister, thank you, Tuan Speaker. On the bus
service in Kuching I have learnt from this reporting recently on the STAR, there are

Y.B. Encik Wong King Wei: STS, the Sarawak Transport Services has proposed to the
government that there is not need for fund, there is not need for any allocation from
State Government or Federal Government for them to improve the bus service in
Kuching. So, is there any step or any approval on the proposal or recommendation from
this bus company which the bus company has never demand any allocation from the
State Government and if the proposal is viable I think the bus service in Kuching City
can be improved tremendously. Is there any approval or any steps having been taken
after the recommendation to the State Government?

Pada 16 Mei 2012, semasa majlis pelancaran buku .The Lanjak Entimau Story:
Changing Landscape in Biodiversity Conservation. dan .Birds of Bario and The Kelabit
Highlands. terbitan Jabatan Hutan Sarawak dengan kerjasama International Tropical
Timber Organization (ITTO) di Dewan Santapan, DUN ini, Pengarah Eksekutif ITTO, Mr.
Emmanuel Ze Meka dalam ucapan beliau menyanjung tinggi usaha Kerajaan Negeri
yang mempunyai satu sistem pengurusan hutan yang baik termasuk inisiatif ke arah
mewujudkan kelestarian hutan hujan tropikanya.

Beliau menyatakan bahawa ITTO mempunyai rangka kerja untuk Pengurusan
Hutan Lestari dan Sarawak telah menggunapakai peraturan dan garis panduan yang
telah ditubuhkan dalam rangka kerja ITTO tersebut. Mr. Emmanuel Ze Meka telah

menyimpulkan bahawa Sarawak adalah antara negara-negara tropika yang mempunyai
pengurusan hutan lestari yang termaju di dunia. Pengiktirafan tersebut telah dapat
menangkis anggapan luar yang sentiasa mendakwa bahawa hutan hujan tropika
Sarawak tidak dipelihara dengan elok dan tidak diurus dengan bersistematik. Lebih 80%
muka bumi Sarawak masih lagi dilitupi hutan dan hidupan liar kita masih lagi terpelihara
dengan sempurna.
Sebagai sebuah negeri yang sebahagian besar kawasannya masih diliputi oleh
hutan semulajadi, Sarawak khususnya dan Malaysia amnya berbangga menjadi ahli
kepada International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO).
Untuk makluman Dewan yang mulia ini, penyertaan kita dalam ITTO bermula
seawal tahun 1989, di mana Yang Amat Berhormat Pehin Sri Ketua Menteri sendiri telah
mempelawa ITTO menghantar pakar penyelidiknya ke Sarawak untuk menilai sendiri
keadaan hutan serta mengkaji sistem pengurusan yang diamalkan di negeri ini. Dalam
laporan misi tersebut, ITTO telah memuji Kerajaan Negeri Sarawak kerana telah
mempraktikkan sistem pengurusan hutan hujan tropika yang terbaik di kalangan negara-
negara tropika. Selaras dengan saranan ITTO, maka Kerajaan Negeri masih mampu
menghasilkan pengeluaran kayu balak secara berkekalan untuk menampung keperluan
industri dalaman dan juga eksport.
Prestasi Pengeksportan Produk Kayu
Tuan Speaker, Sarawak telah mencatat nilai eksport produk perkayuan
berjumlah RM7.09 billion dalam tahun 2011. Nilai ini merupakan penurunan sebanyak
3.5% jika dibandingkan dengan nilai eksport yang berjumlah RM7.3 billion dalam tahun
2010.
Penurunan nilai eksport ini adalah dipengaruhi oleh kekurangan permintaan ke
atas produk kayu utama seperti balak, kayu gergaji, papan lapis dan venir. Contohnya,
jumlah nilai eksport balak dalam tahun 2011 telah menurun sebanyak 6.1% kepada
RM1.84 billion berbanding dengan RM1.96 billion dalam tahun 2010. Manakala, nilai
eksport kayu gergaji telah menurun sebanyak 15.7% daripada RM822.4 juta dalam
tahun 2010 kepada RM693.4 juta pada tahun 2011.

Bagi suku pertama tahun 2012 pula, eksport produk kayu telah mencatat
pertumbuhan sebanyak 17.2% kepada RM1.91 billion jika dibandingkan dengan RM1.63
billion dalam tempoh yang sama bagi tahun 2011. Pertumbuhan ini adalah
disumbangkan oleh peningkataan permintaan ke atas balak, papan lapis dan kayu
gergaji. Jumlah nilai eksport bagi ketiga-tiga produk tersebut telah mencatatkan
peningkatan sebanyak 18.1 peratus dari RM1.44 billion dalam suku pertama 2011
kepada RM1.7 billion bagi tempoh yang sama tahun 2012.

Kerajaan menjalankan kegiatan galakan secara berterusan bagi membantu
industri perkayuan terus mengukuhkan kedudukannya di pasaran antarabangsa. Pada
tahun ini, Kerajaan, melalui PUSAKA dan kerjasama agensi-agensi lain telah berjaya
mengadakan Misi Pelaburan dan Jualan Kayu Sarawak ke Korea Selatan pada 10-15
Januari 2012 dan ke India pada 11-18 Mac 2012.

Misi-misi ini telah mendapat sambutan yang menggalakkan daripada pengimport
dan pembeli di negara-negara berkenaan di mana sejumlah lebih kurang RM41 juta nilai
dagangan telah diterima.

Isu-Isu Spesifik

Tuan Speaker, saya ingin menyentuh perkara yang dibangkitkan oleh Ahli Yang
Berdasarkan
didaftarkan dan
Oleh yang
Berhormat bagi Repok mengenai pengeksportan sarang burung walit.
rekod Jabatan Hutan Sarawak, pada tahun 2011 sehingga bulan Mei 2012, sebanyak 76
syarikat pengeksport sarang burung walit berlesen telah membuat
transaksi pergeskportan sarang burung walit dari
yang
Sarawak. demikian,
kenyataan bahawa hanya lapan syarikat sahaja diberikan lesen untuk
mengeksport sarang burung walit ini adalah tidak benar. Di Sarawak, mana-mana pihak
boleh memohon lesen eksport sarang burung ini dengan membayar levi sebanyak
RM50 sekilogram.

Kerajaan menggalakkan penyertaan mana-mana pihak untuk berkecimpung
dalam industri sarang burung walit ini. Oleh itu, mereka yang berminat boleh memohon
lesen penternakan dan eksport sarang burung walit sama ada secara individu ataupun
melalui syarikat, tertakluk kepada pematuhan terhadap peraturan dan syarat-syarat
yang telah ditetapkan oleh Kerajaan Negeri dan Kerajaan Persekutuan.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Jemoreng, pokok sekiu dalam
bahasa Melanau atau pokok ketiau paya Ganua motleyana daripada famili Sapotaceae
adalah merupakan spesis tumbuhan terlindung, protected plants di Sarawak di bawah
Wild Life Protection Ordinance, 1998.
Oleh sebab itu, adalah menjadi satu kesalahan menebang pokok sekiu atau
ketiau paya tanpa lesen daripada Controller of Wild Life, Sarawak. Jika disabit
kesalahan, pesalah boleh dihukum penjara setahun dan denda RM10,000.
Environmental Management
Tuan Speaker, I would like to highlight on some of the pertinent environmental
issues and the effort of the Government in the management and enhancement of the
environmental quality in Sarawak.
Kualiti Udara Dan Jerebu
Salah satu isu alam sekitar yang harus diberi perhatian ialah tentang kualiti
udara dan jerebu. Isu ini telah menjadi kebimbangan orang ramai kerana jerebu bukan
hanya satu bentuk pencemaran atmosfera, tetapi juga telah menjadi masalah yang
sering mengganggu kita dari beberapa aspek seperti kesihatan awam, pelancongan dan
pengangkutan.

Penyebab utama jerebu di rantau kita ialah aktiviti pembakaran terbuka yang
berlaku di persekitaran bandar dan luar bandar. Selalunya, masalah jerebu berlaku
semasa musim kering serentak dengan penanaman padi tahunan oleh petani-petani.
Negeri kita juga sering menghadapi jerebu rentas sempadan (transboundary haze)

28


BELUM DISUNTING

21 MEI 2012

disebabkan oleh aktiviti pembakaran terbuka dan kebakaran hutan yang berlaku di
negara jiran kita. Sejak awal Januari hingga 8 Mei 2012, terdapat 352 titik panas
(hotspot) telah dikesan di negeri kita berbanding 2504 titik panas (hotspot) di Sumatera
dan 934 titik panas (hotspot) di Kalimantan.

Secara keseluruhannya, kualiti udara di Negeri Sarawak sejak awal tahun
sehingga kini adalah baik. Walau bagaimanapun, kita hendaklah sentiasa berwaspada
kerana cuaca yang tidak menentu disebabkan kesan pemanasan global.

Tuan Speaker, negeri kita dijangka akan mengalami cuaca kering khususnya
dari bulan Mei hingga September tahun ini. Ini disebabkan dalam tempoh tersebut,
purata jumlah hujan diramalkan antara 20% hingga 40% di bawah purata normal.
Keadaan
memantau
Kedua-dua NREB dan Jabatan Alam
Untuk
makluman, purata normal bulanan adalah antara 200 milimeter hingga 300 milimeter.
Malah, bagi kawasan di Bahagian Bintulu dan Mukah cuaca diramalkan lebih kering lagi
disebabkan hujan dijangka antara 40% hingga 60% di bawah purata normal.
cuaca sebegini boleh menggalakkan lagi kejadian kebakaran hutan, terutamanya di
kawasan tanah gambut.

Bagi mengelakkan kejadian jerebu berulang, Kerajaan menerusi NREB, Jabatan
Alam Sekitar (JAS) dan Jabatan Meteorologi akan dengan teliti corak
perubahan cuaca dan kualiti udara di negeri kita.

Sekitar juga akan menggiatkan aktiviti penguatkuasaan, terutama semasa cuaca kering.
Kerajaan Negeri juga telah menubuhkan Jawatankuasa Bencana dan Bantuan Negeri di
peringkat Negeri dan Bahagian sebagai persediaan untuk menangani masalah ini.
Oleh itu, saya menyeru kepada orang ramai supaya tidak melakukan
pembakaran terbuka sewenang-wenangnya. Tugas menangani masalah jerebu ini tidak
hanya dibebankan kepada agensi Kerajaan sahaja tetapi memerlukan kerjasama semua
lapisan masyarakat.
Audit Alam Sekitar
Tuan Speaker, NREB telah mengambil inisiatif untuk mengkaji Peraturan-
Peraturan Alam Sekitar dan telah pun memperkenalkan the Natural Resources and
Environment (Audit) Rules, 2008. Tujuan audit alam sekitar ini adalah untuk menyemak
status pematuhan terhadap apa-apa arahan atau syarat kelulusan sesuatu projek yang
dikeluarkan oleh NREB.
NREB dalam masa terdekat akan menguatkuasakan Peraturan tersebut kerana
Garis Panduan Audit Alam Sekitar telah pun siap disediakan. Sehubungan ini, NREB
akan mengadakan jerayawara (roadshow) bagi memberi kesedaran di kalangan
“stakeholders” tentang keperluan-keperluan peruntukan di bawah Audit Rules ini.
Peraturan Audit Alam Sekitar ini bertujuan untuk mengukuhkan pematuhan
peraturan-peraturan dan penguatkuasaan undang-undang alam sekitar oleh pemaju
projek dan bukan untuk membebankan mereka.

Oleh itu, saya berharap semua pihak memberi kerjasama dan komitmen ke arah
pematuhan Peraturan Audit Alam Sekitar. Dalam jangka masa panjang, Peraturan ini
akan menggalakkan pemaju projek dan industri ke arah “self-regulation” yang menjurus
kepada pembangunan mapan di negeri kita.

Septic Sludge Treatment

I would like to report in this august House that the construction of the Miri Septic
Sludge Treatment Plant has been completed last month. Now, the Plant is undergoing
the final stage of Testing and Commissioning.

With the commissioning of the Miri Plant next month, we will have three septic
to our
sludge treatment plants in the State to serve the local authorities in Kuching, Sibu, Miri
and Kota Samarahan. The local authorities can carry out scheduled desludging of septic
tanks within their areas and this will greatly reduce the pollution rivers and
streams.

Secara ringkasnya, pembinaan loji-loji

sistem pembetungan bersepadu.

Centralized Sewerage Systems
Tuan Speaker, as our cities grow, the volume of black and grey water will
increase. We need to implement centralized sewerage systems which will collect and
treat both the black and grey water. We cannot continue to allow the grey water from our
kitchens, bath rooms and wash areas to be discharged without any form of treatment
directly into our drains.
However, these centralized sewerage systems are very capital-intensive. We are
glad that the Federal Government had approved the construction of Package 1 of
Kuching City Centralised Sewerage System costing RM530 million under the Ninth
Malaysia Plan. To date, we have achieved an overall progress of about 70%. The
Package is scheduled to complete end of this year. We are liaising with the Federal
Government for further development fund to continue with our future packages.
Within the next few months we shall commence the most challenging task of this
Package, which is the Property Connection works. We have to enter every affected
property to lay the sewer pipes in order to channel the wastewater to the public sewer. I
would like to assure all affected owners that our contractor and our officers will plan and
coordinate the sequence of the connection works to minimize any inconveniences and
disruptions. I appeal for their cooperation and understanding so that these works could
be completed smoothly.

hole that the company dig is badly damaged and is there any plan or any guideline in
respect of the work that the company should maintain the roads properly while the
project is being carried out and not leave the damaged road as it is throughout the whole
length of the project. That is question number one. Any guideline and whether it has

accidents had happened. That is number one.

Number two, in respect of the properties that have been damaged since the

dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): I have answered that, Tuan Speaker.

Tuan Speaker: Honourable Member for Padungan, please sit down.

Y.B. Encik Chong Chieng Jen: The roads uneven.
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Memanglah, tak semua yang boleh diperbaiki sebaik-baiknya but at least

repair works had been done. (Inaudible)
Tuan Speaker: Please proceed.
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Okay. Tuan Speaker, merujuk kepada pembinaan Jalan Lanang di bawah
Flood Mitigation Project yang dibangkitkan oleh Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Dudong,
adalah dimaklumkan bahawa pembinaan Jalan Lanang merupakan sebahagian
daripada projek Rancangan Tebatan Banjir Sibu Fasa 1. Sehingga 7 Mei, kemajuan
fizikal adalah 93%. Mengenai kualiti jalan yang dikatakan kurang sempurna, ini adalah
tidak tepat kerana keseluruhan kerja dalam fasa 1 ini belum lagi siap sepenuhnya.
Merujuk kepada cadangan Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Nangka, Kampung
Bahagia Jaya dan Kampung Jeriah merupakan kawasan penempatan semula yang
terletak di tanah gambut dengan kedalaman melebihi 3.0 meter. Selepas dibina melebihi
20 tahun, kawasan ini telah termendap dan memberi kesan kepada sistem saliran.
Tuan Speaker: Are you taking clafication of Honourable Member for Dudong?
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Let me finish with this one. Jabatan Pengairan Dan Saliran (JPS)
melaksanakan kerja-kerja penyelenggaraan saliran utama (Trunk drain) dua kali
setahun manakala Majlis Perbandaran Sibu pula menyelenggarakan saliran di dalam
kawasan perumahan serta jalan raya. Selain itu Pejabat Residen dan Daerah serta
Jabatan Kerja Raya (JKR) turut terlibat dalam kerja-kerja pembaikan saliran dan jalan.
Memandangkan masalah saliran dan mendapan yang berterusan di kawasan
tanah gambut, Kerajaan akan mengkaji keberkesanan sistem saliran dengan kawalan
pam. Pada masa yang sama saliran berlebihan (over drainage) boleh mengakibatkan
pemendapan tanah (ground subsidence) yang lebih teruk.
Bagi Kampung Datu dan Kampung Hilir di Kawasan DUN Nangka, terdapat
cadangan pembangunan semula kawasan kampung. Jalan dan saliran baru akan
dimasukkan ke dalam cadangan berkenaan.

Tuan Speaker, dengan ini saya mengakhiri Ucapan Penggulungan dari
Kementerian Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar.

Tuan Speaker: Ahli-Ahli Yang Berhormat, Now, we have a break and the sitting will
resume at 11:50 a.m.

Tuan Speaker: Sekarang saya menjemput Yang Berhormat Menteri Kemudahan Awam


untuk menyampai ucapan penggulungan.

Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Terima kasih, Tuan Speaker.

Rural Water Supply
For the information of this august House, the Government has been making
progress in the implementation of many Water Supply Projects under the National Key
Result Areas (NKRA) Programme, Special Package and SCORE initiatives. Every effort
is made to increase the coverage of treated water supply in the State especially in the
rural areas so as to promote public health as well as to improve the quality of life. For
isolated settlements located in the interior areas, alternative systems of providing clean
water such as gravity feed systems, household tanks for rain water harvesting and tube
well shave been implemented to alleviate hardship to the people until such time when it
becomes viable to replace them with treated water supply.
NKRA Programme for Rural Water Supply
For the information of this august House, Sarawak is allocated about RM1.73
billion to implement Projek Bekalan Air Luar Bandar (BALB) under the NKRA
programme. Out of 477 water supply projects, 311 projects had been completed
compared with 216 as reported at the last sitting of this august House. The remaining
166 projects are now at various stages of implementation.
As I have mentioned in the last sitting, it is expected that about 89,000
households would benefit from the various projects being carried out. By the end of this
year, the number of beneficiaries will be about 50,000 household and is expected to
reach 89,000 households by 2013.
Water Supply Projects Under Special Fund
The Government is also implementing 30 Water Supply Projects at a cost of
RM109.75 million under the Special Fund. To date, 27 projects have been completed
while 3 projects are at various stages of implementation.
Water Supplies in SCORE Area
The provision of water supply to Samalaju Industrial Park within Sarawak
Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE) area had been progressing well and is able to
meet the demands of the industries and the surrounding areas such as Kampung Kuala
Nyalau, Kampung Nyalau Tengah and Kampung Ulu Nyalau in Bintulu Division.

Further development of the water supply to Mukah region has also been
approved under the SCORE initiatives. This involves the expansion of the existing
treatment capacity and upgrading of the raw water intake pumping system and
associated facilities.

Specific Issues

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Batu Kawah, the pipeline project
had just been completed and handed over to KWB. The residents in those areas can
now apply for water supply connections.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Tamin, to address the problem of
water supply at Sekuau Resettlement Scheme area, a proposal to upgrade the existing
Nanga Stapang treatment plant to 2.5 MLD had been included in the Third Rolling Plan
for the consideration of KKLW. The replacement of ageing distribution pipelines is also
included.

On the new Selangau water treatment plant, the construction works has been
progressing very satisfactorily at 88.8% completion and is expected to be completed by
August 2012.
Tuan Speaker: Are taking a point of clarification of Batu Kawah?
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Ya.
Y.B. Cik Christina Chiew Wang See: Honourable Minister, may I know when did the
Batu Kawah people can enjoy the clean water supply?
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): I have mentioned that they can apply now.
Y.B. Cik Christina Chiew Wang See: Ya, it is one year ago already done, I know the
pipe has been done.
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): The project is just handed over to KKLW. So, now they can apply. As
regards rural water supply coverage in Sarawak raised by Ahli Yang Berhormat for
Pelawan, it is estimated that 80% of the rural population would be served with treated
water supply upon the completion of the NKRA projects.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Repok, a water supply project for
the upgrading of Sarikei treatment plant to more than double its existing production
capacity had been approved for implementation by KKLW.
Regarding the supply of water tanks, the Government will consider providing
them to remote and isolated areas which are not feasible to be reached and supplied
with treated water through pipeline extensions. However, for the people who are residing
within an area already served with treated water supply, the request for the supply of
household tanks is not considered a priority.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Pujut, saya amat menyedari tentang
masalah bekalan air yang dihadapi oleh penduduk-penduduk di Lawas sejak dari dulu
lagi, jauh lebih awal daripada Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Pujut menjadi wakil rakyat. Jadi
itu, janganlah terlalu terhegeh-hegeh. Disebabkan itulah, saya telah mencadangkan
agar Kerajaan mempertingkatkan kapasiti pengeluaran dan agihan bekalan air

34


BELUM DISUNTING

21 MEI 2012

dilaksanakan di Lawas. Saya amat berterima kasih atas keprihatinan Kerajaan untuk
memberi keutamaan kepada pelaksanaan Projek Bekalan Air Wilayah di Trusan yang
meliputi sebahagian besar kawasan di Lawas. Projek Bekalan Air Wilayah Trusan
sepatutnya siap pada 1 November 2010. Namun begitu, pelaksanaan projek ini telah
tergendala disebabkan oleh sering berlakunya gangguan oleh seorang penduduk yang
tidak bertanggungjawab dan mengancam kontraktor malahan berlaku pembakaran
terhadap peralatan-peralatan pembinaan loji berkenaan. Tindakannya telah melewatkan
pelaksanaan projek tersebut dan menyebabkan beribu-ribu rakyat di Lawas sering
berhadapan dengan masalah bekalan air. Memburukkan lagi keadaan, individu tersebut
telah dihasut oleh pihak pembangkang. Ini jelas menunjukkan bahawa kepentingan
umum yang melibatkan beribu-ribu penduduk di Lawas diketepikan demi untuk

kepentingan individu dan agenda politik sempit pembangkang. Projek-projek Bekalan
Air Wilayah di Trusan dijangka hanya akan dapat disiapkan pada penghujung tahun
2012. Saya amat berharap demi kepentingan masyarakat di Lawas agar pelaksanaan
projek ini tidak akan terganggu lagi demi kepentingan rakyat di Lawas. Dalam masa
yang sama, Kerajaan telah melaksanakan Loji Rawatan Air tambahan yang berkapasiti
dua juta liter sehari di Gelugus, Lawas di bawah program NKRA bagi meningkatkan
kapasiti loji air sedia ada di Gelugus. Ini dilakukan demi untuk menangani masalah
bekalan air di Lawas lebih-lebih lagi di bandar Lawas dan kampung-kampung
persekitaran. Projek ini terpaksa dilaksanakan memandangkan kelewatan pelaksanaan
Projek Bekalan Air Wilayah di Trusan.
With regard to the recent unfortunate incident of diesel spill into Sungai Liku as
mentioned by Ahli Yang Berhormat for Piasau, I wish to highlight that the premix plant in
question was set up by Jabatan Kerja Raya in the early eighties, well before the Liku
water catchment area was gazetted in 1999. CMS Premix Sdn. Bhd. only took over the
plant in 1992. Anyway, this issue had been explained in the Dewan when the private
motion was rejected by the Speaker.
Walau bagaimanapun, saya ingin menjelaskan bahawa pihak Kerajaan
sebenarnya telah mengambil langkah yang perlu dan segera untuk menangani masalah
pencemaran Sungai Liku akibat daripada tumpahan minyak diesel dari Loji Premix
berkenaan. Sebaik sahaja insiden tersebut berlaku, Loji Premix berkenaan telah
diarahkan untuk memberhentikan operasi serta-merta bagi memudahkan kerja-kerja
pembersihan ke atas pencemaran yang telah berlaku. Loji Premix ini telah dibenarkan
beroperasi semula kerana Jabatan Alam Sekitar telah berpuas hati terhadap komitmen
dan langkah-langkah yang telah diambil oleh pemilik Loji Premix tersebut.
Bagi mengelakkan insiden yang sama berulang, Kerajaan Negeri telah membuat
keputusan supaya kedua-dua Loji Premix, iaitu CMS Premix dan Uta Jaya Engineering
berpindah ke tapak yang sesuai. Being a responsible Barisan Nasional Government, the
Government has never put any company above the safety and health of the rakyat.
Sementara Loji Premix ini masih beroperasi di tempat yang sama, Jabatan Alam Sekitar
akan sentiasa memantau secara rapi terhadap operasi Loji Premix ini untuk memastikan
insiden yang sama tidak berulang. Kerajaan juga telah memutuskan supaya NREB
menyediakan satu pelan menyeluruh untuk mengelakkan aktiviti-aktiviti yang boleh
mencemar kawasan tadahan air Sungai Liku, Miri.

Tuan Speaker, I wish to clarify that the oil spill incident actually did not affect the
consumers in Bekenu and not all the consumers in Miri were affected because the
Lambir water treatment plant was still delivering 52 MLD (40% of normal demand) of
treated water throughout the day. LAKU with the assistance of Petronas and Shell had
responded speedily and professionally to contain the spill and restore the water supply
within the shortest time possible. I wish to inform this Dewan that under Section 36 of
the Water Ordinance, Water Supply Authorities are not liable to pay any compensation

35


BELUM DISUNTING

21 MEI 2012

arising out of water supply interruptions. Also, it is generally not a practice by the water
supply purveyors in Malaysia and other countries to compensate consumers for any
damage or loss which may result from water supply interruptions.

For the long term Miri water supply needs, the Government has planned to
source for raw water from Batang Baram. A consultant had been appointed to carry out
the detailed study and design of the raw water transfer system from Batang Baram to
Sungai Liku. After the oil spill incident and subsequent cleaning up operations, the
Department of Chemistry had tested raw water samples of Sungai Liku and found them
to be in compliance with the recommended raw water quality criteria under the National
Drinking Water Quality Standards.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Dudong, sejak pelaksanaan projek-
projek bekalan air di bawah program NKRA, empat buah rumah panjang di kawasan
Dudong telah disambung dengan bekalan air terawat. Rumah panjang itu ialah Rumah
Lapok Ulu Menyan, Rumah Linggang Ulu Menyan, Rumah Sandom Sungai Pak dan
Rumah Sylvester Ingon Sungai Pak. Tiga buah rumah panjang, iaitu Rumah Epan
Assan Bayu, Rumah Mani Sungai Assan dan Rumah Lingga akan mendapat bekalan air
pada masa yang terdekat. Beberapa buah rumah panjang yang lain akan mendapat
bekalan air dengan siapnya projek Bekalan Air Kanowit Fasa II pada tahun depan.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Tamin, the construction of
Bekalan Air Kawasan Teku-Pasai Siong in Sibu is 98% complete. This project will
benefit one clinic, two primary schools (SK Sungai Siong and SK Lubok Pelaii) and 10
longhouses in the area. Those unserved areas such as Pasai Siong Tengah and Ulu
had been proposed under the Third Rolling Plan.
Untuk makluman Ahli yang Berhormat bagi Pantai Damai, Projek Bekalan Air
Bersih Kampung Salak dan kampung-kampung sekitarnya telah dikemukakan untuk
pertimbangan dalam Third Rolling Plan. Sementara itu, penyambungan paip ke
Kampung Sungai Batu telah siap sepenuhnya pada Disember 2011.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Bukit Kota, the proposed wate
rmain extension to Rumah Sengat Baru and Rumah Bakat, Jalan Kubong, Limbang had
been put up to KKLW for consideration in the Third Rolling Plan. Another project,
namely, proposed water main extension from Jalan Batu Danau to Meritam, Rumah Bali
Merasam and Kampung Bumbum had also been put up to KKLW for consideration in
the Third Rolling Plan. Investigation for Rumah Jantin, Rumah Rumpang and Kampung
Merasam Ulu will be carried out and if viable, the proposal will be submitted to KKLW
under future Rolling Plans.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Batang Ai, upon the completion of
the new water treatment plant at Lubok Antu which also includes pipelines, the areas
mentioned will have access to water supply. For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat
for Krian, all of the villages mentioned will have access to water supply upon the
completion of the Saratok treatment plant and pipeline extension projects by 2013.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Beting Maro, the proposal to
replace pipelines in Kampung Beladin and Kampung Pusa and also the submarine
pipeline across Sungai Rimbas will be submitted for the consideration of KKLW. A
proposal to extend pipeline to serve Kampung Paloh and Beting Maro had been
submitted to KKLW under the Third Rolling Plan. On the supply of water to Rumah Kam
and Rumah Duat, an alternative rain water harvesting system has already been
provided. Presently it is not feasible to lay pipelines to supply treated water to these
longhouses as they are inaccessible by road.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Meluan, the areas mentioned will
be considered in the Third Rolling Plan. The Government plans to upgrade the existing

1.3 MLD treatment plant to 5 MLD to meet the future demand of water supply in Julau
and surrounding areas. The project also includes the extension of pipeline to Nanga
Ayam, Meluan and Nanga Entabai.
As an immediate measure to overcome the water shortage problem in Sarikei
and Bintangor, new pumps will be installed this year to boost the production and supply
of treated water from the Sarikei headworks.

As a long term measure, the Government has approved the upgrading of the

existing Bayong Water Treatment Plant in Sarikei to more than
new production
from Sarikei
double its current
capacity of 33MLD. The project includes the construction of a new 5ML reservoir and
pipelines. Upon completion of this project by the end of 2014, the
capacity would be adequate to meet the increasing demand and
surrounding areas including Merudu, Kim San, Bayong, Sungai Sebanyak and Bulat
areas.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Daro, water supply to the
kampungs as mentioned will be considered for implementation under future Rolling
Plans.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Batu Danau, a project proposal
for Batu Danau Phase II had been included for consideration in the Third Rolling Plan.
This project involves the extension of pipeline to Nanga Medamit, SMK Medamit and
also the surrounding areas.
On the list of kampungs recommended for alternative water supply, two of the
kampungs namely Pulau Brunei and Rumah Aling had been submitted under the Third
Rolling Plan for the consideration of KKLW. As for the other kampungs in the list, they
will be considered for implementation in future Rolling Plans.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Balai Ringin, water supply to
Sabal, Simpang Punda, Telagus, SK Telagus, Jerok, SK Sungai Pinang, SK Padang
Pedalai and nearby areas will be submitted for consideration under the Third Rolling
Plan.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Telang Usan, a project to
construct main transmission pipelines from Marudi town to Puyu Lubok Nibong areas
had been put up for consideration under the Third Rolling Plan.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Lambir, a proposal to extend
pipelines to kampungs and longhouses as mentioned had been submitted under the
Third Rolling Plan for the consideration of KKLW except for Kampung Jagus, Kampung
Usahajaya Tukau and Kampung Tukau Tengah which would be considered for inclusion
in future Rolling Plans.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Saribas, proposal to extend
pipeline to Kampung Supa, Kampung Medang, Kampung Tuie and Kampung Serabang
had been submitted for consideration of KKLW under the Third Rolling Plan.

For Rumah Buda and Rumah Lubok, investigation shall be conducted to
determine the best form of water supply in serving these longhouses and the necessary
development proposal shall be included for implementation in future Rolling Plans.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Semop, there are five pipeline
projects currently under various stages of implementation in Pulau Bruit. Four of these
projects will be connected to the water treatment plants in Kampung Penibong,
Kampung Saai and Kampung Semop.

However, the fifth project which involves a major trunk pipeline that traverses
from the mainland to Kampung Saai, Kampung Penibong, Kampung Tekajong and
Kampung Bruit can only be fully utilized to supply treated water to Pulau Bruit when the
upgrading of the Sarikei water treatment plant is completed.

Rural Electrification Schemes

Tuan Speaker, I will now touch on Rural Electrification Schemes in the State.
Under the NKRA programme, a total sum of RM1.38 billion had been allocated for the
implementation of RES projects in the State for the period 2009 to 2012. This allocation
is for the implementation of 829 projects which will benefit about 44,300 households. A
further sum of RM350 million is expected to be allocated by the Federal Government
later this year.
The implementation of the projects was carried out in three phases since 2009.
At present, 363 of these projects had been completed and the remaining projects are in
various stages of implementation. Since the commencement of the NKRA program, the
number of houses that have been connected with grid electricity supply to date is
21,635. The rural grid electricity coverage is now 74.3% of the rural population.
Tuan Speaker, for the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Opar, the
implementation of RES projects is mainly based on applications received. Before the
projects are implemented, the appointed contractor would carry out a consumers‘ survey
to determine the route and the number of houses to be connected. Normally, all houses
which are in the project area or along the route of the power supply line would be
included. For those houses which were left out at Kampung Biawak and Kampung
Stenggang, consideration shall be given to include them under the projects presently
being implemented.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Jemoreng, RES projects for the
Ilas and Kampung Kebuaw areas shall be proposed for implementation in 2013.
As regards the achievement in the implementation of the RES projects, I wish to
inform Ahli Yang Berhormat for Dudong that his deductions concerning the physical
achievement in comparison with the financial expenditure are wrong. At the last DUN
sitting, it was stated in my winding-up speech that the allocations for the implementation
of RES projects are RM284 million for the period 2009 to 2010, RM480 million for 2010
to 2011 and RM614 million for 2011 and 2012. The total amount allocated is RM1,378
million. Of this allocation, an amount of RM536.3 million had been spent as at the end of
2011 which is 31.6% of the total anticipated NKRA allocation of RM1.7 billion and not
81% as deduced by Ahli Yang Berhormat for Dudong. The total number of houses
connected with electricity as at the end of 2011 is 16,523 which is 21.18% of the NKRA
target. The reason that the physical achievement percentage is lower than the
expenditure percentage is because the cost of grid electricity connection per house has
increased due to the following factors:

(i)
Increased cost of materials and labour; and
(ii)
Sparse population and the increasing distance between houses or
longhouses as the projects are implemented further into the interior.
38


BELUM DISUNTING

21 MEI 2012

At the start of the NKRA programme, it was estimated that the average cost of
grid connection per house was about RM22,000 but the average cost has now increased
to over RM30,000 per house. As a result, the allocation of RM1.7 billion will not be
adequate to achieve the NKRA target of 95% rural coverage. More allocations shall
therefore be sought from the Federal Government to achieve this target.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Engkilili, the scope of RES
projects includes the installation of service lines to the houses and SESCo meters.
There are no connection charges. However, the house owners will need to pay collateral
deposits to SESCo which shall be used to offset the monthly electricity bills should there
be any default in payment. The projects for Rumah Simon of Sungai Menuang and the

longhouses along Batang Ai Hilir, Engkilili shall be proposed for implementation in 2013.
However, for Rumah Ambon and Rumah Undie, my Ministry has no record of RES
applications from these longhouses. I would therefore advise Ahli Yang Berhormat for
Engkilili to inform the headmen of these longhouses to submit their applications.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Pantai Damai, the RES projects
for Kampung Sibu Laut, Kampung Sungai Aur and Kampung Sungai Daun Nibong will
be considered for implementation in 2013.
Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Tamin, projek-projek Bekalan
Elektrik Luar Bandar (BELB) di Kampung Selangau Baru dan kawasan Pelugau
termasuk Sekolah Kebangsaan Kuala Pelugau telah diluluskan untuk pelaksanaan
dalam tempoh 2011/2012. Manakala kawasan-kawasan lain yang tersebut, projek-
projek BELB bagi kawasan ini akan ditimbangkan untuk pelaksanaan dari tahun 2013 -
2015.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Batu Kawah, the contract for the
RES project for Kampung Bumbok was awarded by the Federal Government based on
design and build basis. The delay in the completion of the project is due to the following
reasons:
(i) Late commencement of works due to delay in appointment of subcontractor
by the main contractor; and
(ii) Problems in the procurement of aerial cables and transformer.
The project is now expected to be completed by November 2012.
On the request by Ahli Yang Berhormat for Ngemah, I wish to inform that there
are plans to connect electricity supply to all the longhouses along the Nibong Tada road.
The projects shall be carried out in phases.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Kedup, the Government will
consider to extend grid electricity supply to those unserved areas in phases in view of
the large allocations required. On the suggestion by Ahli Yang Berhormat for Kedup for
SESCo to implement RES projects, I wish to inform that commencing from this year,
SESCo is implementing RES projects with funds allocated by the Federal Government to
carry out electricity supply connections to houses, particularly for late applicants in areas
where RES projects had previously been completed. SESCo will liaise with my Ministry
on the list of projects to be implemented. This approach will speed up connections for
late applicants.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Bukit Kota, the RES project for Rh
Sengat is presently being implemented. Supply of electricity to Kampung Belantak,

39


BELUM DISUNTING

21 MEI 2012

Rumah Bakat and Rumah Iman will be considered for implementation in the Third
Rolling Plan.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Saribas, projek-projek BELB di
kawasan-kawasan tersebut telah disiapkan kecuali di Kampung Buda yang masih dalam
pelaksanaan. Bagi kawasan-kawasan yang telah dibekalkan dengan elektrik,
permohonan untuk penyambungan oleh pemohon lewat akan juga dipertimbangkan.
Projek BELB bagi Rumah Lubok akan dipertimbangkan setelah kita menerima
permohonan daripada penduduk rumah panjang berkenaan.

Untuk makluman Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Krian, Kerajaan mempunyai

rancangan untuk menyambung bekalan elektrik ke kawasan-kawasan yang telah
disebutkan. Berkaitan dengan masalah izin lalu melalui ladang kelapa sawit, usaha akan
dilakukan oleh Kerajaan untuk menyelesaikan masalah berkenaan.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Balai Ringin, RES projects for
kampungs as mentioned shall be proposed for implementation in 2013, except for
Kampung Senkujang, Empaling, Sg. Indai, Mentu, Muding, Tuba and Sapak. As my
Ministry has no record of applications for RES projects from these kampungs, the
headmen concerned should be advised to submit their applications.
With regard to the request by Ahli Yang Berhormat for Daro, priority for extension
of electricity supply from the grid is usually accorded to areas which are accessible by
roads as this will not only facilitate the implementation of the projects but also
subsequent maintenance by SESCo. However for the areas mentioned, studies shall be
carried out on the feasibility of implementing the RES projects. For Kampung Penasu
and the nearby kampungs, a study had already been carried out and the project shall be
proposed for implementation in 2013.
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Meluan, all the populated areas
with road access can be considered in future RES plans. Supply will be extended from
the existing distribution system to these areas and not from the 500kV transmission line
which is used to transport bulk power. Under the NKRA program, five projects with a
total cost of RM28.7 million have been approved for implementation to date, of which
4four have been completed and 1 is under implementation.
Tuan Speaker: Ahli-Ahli Yang Berhormat, we have a short break for lunch and the

Tuan Speaker: Sekarang saya menjemput Ahli Yang Berhormat Menteri Kemudahan
Awam untuk menyambungkan ucapan penggulungan.

Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Tuan Speaker, I will now touch on the specific issues for Electricity Supply.

Electricity Supply

With regard to the issue of charging normal (household, commercial and
industrial) consumers similar to electricity tariff as SCORE bulk consumers for power

40


BELUM DISUNTING

21 MEI 2012

from Bakun HEP, I wish to inform this august House that the cost of supplying power
varies significantly between normal consumers and bulk consumers which are mainly
the energy-intensive industries. The rates offered to all the consumer categories
including those bulk consumers in SCORE reflect the actual cost of supply. Contrary to
misleading claims by Ahli-Ahli Yang Berhormat from the opposition, there is no element
of subsidy by Sarawakians for supply made available to the bulk consumers. In fact, it is
the Barisan Nasional Government who subsidizes the domestic consumers. The
Government had spent RM11 million and RM12 million in 2010 and 2011 respectively to
subsidise the electricity supply to domestic consumers.

Bakun HEP is not feasible for the much smaller and slower off take growth of

power from the normal consumers that is (domestic, commercial and industrial)
consumers. The bulk consumers due to their huge scale of operation, consume large
amount of power that made Bakun HEP feasible to implement and supply competitively-
priced electricity. The Bakun HEP will benefit Sarawakians through stable electricity
price, instead of increasing price trend, as experienced by other countries dependent on
volatile fossil fuels, including TNB in Peninsular Malaysia.

Another significant attribute of the bulk SCORE consumers is that power is sold
to them on a take or pay basis. This means they will have to pay for 90% to 95% of the
agreed power capacity even if they do not use the energy. The bulk consumers also

have a long-term commitment to take this power from 10 to 25 years. The tariffs for bulk
consumers are also escalated annually based on fixed inflation rates. They are also
required to pay heavy penalties if they terminate their contracts and are required to
make large upfront payments.
In contrast, normal consumers only pay for the power that they use based on the
fixed published rates and enjoy flexibility in deciding when and how much they wish to
take. Bulk consumers receive power at 275kv or 132kv and do not use the distribution
grid network needed to supply normal consumers. This large scale distribution grid
network is costly to build and maintain, and the equipment for the distribution
infrastructure networks such as poles, cables, wires and transformers to lower the 275kv
or 132kv to 240 volts or 11kv for normal consumers increasing the cost of supply due to
additional investment and maintenance incurred. The large distribution networks serving
the normal consumers also have significantly higher losses, as compared to individual
bulk consumers.
Tuan Speaker, Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Meradong kerap bermain dengan isu
tarif elektrik yang lebih mahal bagi Negeri Sarawak. Saya telah berkali-kali membuat
penjelasan di Dewan yang mulia ini sejak tahun 2009 bahawa tarif purata di Negeri
Sarawak adalah lebih murah berbanding dengan tarif purata elektrik di Semenanjung
Malaysia. Saya ingin menyatakan sekali lagi bahawa penduduk di Negeri Sarawak telah
menikmati tarif elektrik yang kompetitif untuk sekian lama. Maka, .hoo-haa. yang
dicetuskan pihak pembangkang dalam perkara ini sangatlah tidak masuk akal, lebih-
lebih lagi bila TNB membuat pelarasan kenaikan tarifnya bermula Jun 2011.

Y.B. Encik Chong Chieng Jen: Thank you, Tuan Speaker. Thank you, Honourable
Minister. Honourable Minister was saying just now about the bulk use, about electricity
user in SCORE they take or pay basis. Yes, I agreed. I agree but as such the operation
cost is cost of supply electricity to them is cheaper. I agree. Likewise, we have a lot of
local industries. Local industries, their factories also should be offer the same rate as
those in the SCORE area but why it is not done so. They also used a large amount of
electricity. They also used, a lot of them also used, need electricity 24 hours plus they
operate 24 hours ... (Interruption)

Tuan Speaker: Okay. Make your point. You make your point.

Y.B. Encik Chong Chieng Jen: Yes, but the fact is that why they are not offered the
same rate, number one. Number two, can we have the rates of supply of electricity to
the companies in SCORE so that we can make comparison. They should not be
anything to hide, it should be transparent. These are only trade relation. Is nothing to do
with national security.
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Terima kasih, Tuan Speaker, as I mentioned just now that the local

industries especially the SMEs that they are paying based on power that they
consumed. Now, I would like to mention here, for example, for industrial consumer
charged by Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB) last year was 18.4 cents, from Jan – March
this year. SEB 18.0 cents as against Tenaga National Berhad (TNB) pre June 2011,
28.8 cents and post June 2011 increased to 30.9 cents. So, we are actually cheaper
compare to TNB.
Y.B. Cik Ting Tze Fui: (Inaudible)
Tuan Speaker: No, no. I said. Are you taking it again Honourable Minister?(Interruption)
(Inaudible). Ya, that Sarawak is cheaper.
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam

industries. No, I don‘t ... (Interruption) (Inaudible)
Tuan Speaker: Proceed.
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam

Tuan Speaker: Move to the next paragraph.

Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Yes. With regards to the frequent system blackouts in Miri, Sarawak as
raised by Ahli Yang Berhormat for Piasau and Kota Sentosa, I wish to inform that power
supply interruptions also happen to other utilities worldwide. These outages are
essentially due to transients and system trippings caused by natural elements such as
lightning strikes, thunderstorms, trees and animals coming into contact with power lines
and equipment. Examples of major power outages around the world are:

(a)
The 28thSeptember, 2003 blackout that struck most of Italy due to system
parts of United States and
trips and vegetation, affecting over 56 million people for 18 hours;
(b)
The 14thAugust, 2003 blackout in northeastern United States hitting New
York, Detroit, Boston, Cleveland and Ottawa, Canada affecting over 50
million people for up to four days in some
Canada;
(c)
The 4thNovember, 2006 power outage across western Europe affecting
heavily populated areas of Germany, France and Italy, as well as parts of
Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, and Belgium affecting 15 million people
for two hours, and
(d) The 4thFebruary, 2011 major blackout in northeastern Brazil affecting an
estimated 53 million people for 16 hours.
Sarawak‘s power demand is increasing very rapidly within a short period of time
and this will put some strains on the present system which needs to be expanded and
reinforced from time to time. SEB is aggressively pursuing and charting the direction to
provide high level performance in the power supply through physical hardware
development such as generation, transmission and distribution infrastructures and also
the development of the manpower expertise, knowledge and skills which are necessary
to manage and operate the future system.
SEB will be commencing with the construction of the 500kV transmission lines,
which will form the second grid spanning across Sarawak. This 600km second
transmission line will be constructed in two phases and scheduled to complete in 2014
and 2015 respectively. With the completion of this second grid, the State will be well
protected against the incidence of system blackout.
SEB‘s system average interruption frequency index (SAIFI) has decreased from
3.82 in 2002 to 1.72 interruptions per consumer per year in 2011 which is lower than that
of Australia and Sabah Electricity Sendirian Berhad (SESB) at 2.09 and 16.90

interruptions per consumer per year respectively. With regard to SEB‘s system average

interruption duration index (SAIDI), the index has decreased from 419 in 2002 to 152
minutes per consumer per year in 2011. This is very much lower compared to that of

Australia and SESB at 259 and 495 minutes per consumer per year respectively. SEB‘s

interruption performance indicators, although varying from year to year depending on
several factors such as weather conditions and expansion of distribution networks to the
rural areas that may affect the stability of the supply system, are generally on a
downward trend, showing the strong positive efforts by SEB to improve supply.

Comparing SEB to utilities from Europe, according to the Fifth Council of
European Energy Regulators Benchmarking Report on the Quality of Electricity Supply
2011, Sarawak's distribution reliability (SAIDI) in 2011 was similar to that of Ireland, only
marginally weaker than Norway, France and Italy, and significantly better than Hungary,
Portugal, Lithuania and the Czech Republic.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Meradong, the power interruptions
that happened at localized distribution system for the area as mentioned had been
answered in this sitting during the question and answer session.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Batu Kawah the interruptions at

Rantau Panjang, Jalan Batu Kawah-Matang were caused by transients on uninsulated
overhead lines.
Y.B. Cik Ting Tze Fui: Thank you, Honourable Minister. Just now you were mentioning
about my question on power disruption in Meradong has been answered in question and
answer. But actually the answer given during the question and answer is for January to
March and what I mentioned in my speech is from March to April. So, can you explain
me on that?
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): I think, Tuan Speaker, that is already answered. I do not want to repeat on
the same thing.
Tuan Speaker: Honourable Member for Meradong, there is no need for the Honourable
Minister to give day-to-day account.
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Alright, it is okay.
Tuan Speaker: Honourable Member for Meradong, with variation what they called within
engineering tolerant.
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): Tuan Speaker, I just continue?
Tuan Speaker: Continue, continue.
Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah bin
Ali Hasan): The overhead lines, installed under Rural Electrification Scheme many
years ago passed through the private farming land owned by various consumers taking
the supply. During the project implementation, there was no proper access road then, so
the overhead lines were constructed through many fruit trees along the way in order to
supply the houses. Due to close proximity, the fallen trees or branches had caused
damages to the overhead lines especially under strong winds. SESCo was unable to
trim these fruit trees to the standard clearance due to objections from the owners.
However, recently SESCo had been able to carry out some trimming works with the
cooperation of the land owners in order to minimize the damages caused by the fallen
fruit trees branches.

SESCo has scheduled to replace four spans of the single-phase bare conductors
to PVC covered conductors by end of May 2012. For the remaining spans of bare low
voltage overhead lines, SESCo is in the process of seeking wayleaves from the relevant
land owners to consider re-routing some of the affected overhead lines away from the
fruit orchards. Even … (Interruption)

Tuan Speaker: Honourable Member for Meradong

Menteri Perancangan Sumber dan Alam Sekitar II dan Menteri Kemudahan Awam
dan Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian (Y.B. Datuk Amar Haji Awang Tengah
Bin Ali Hasan): Even after replacing with PVC covered conductors, vegetation clearing
will still be required to prevent heavy branches damaging the cover or even breaking the
conductors.
SESCo plans to carry out the yearly progressive replacement of Low Voltage
bare conductors which include the areas at 7th and 8th Mile.

With regard to the electricity supply disruptions raised by Ahli Yang Berhormat for
Sadong Jaya, SEB has implemented various mitigation measures such as aerial cable
replacements, vegetation clearings and pole-top maintenance to address the frequent
power supply disruptions. Records from SESCo indicated improvement in the reliability
of power was
power supply, SEB
the supply in the area.
80% completed with the target completion date by early
replacement of these cables at Sadong Jaya Ulu, Subi/Sebandi and Moyang Lidang has
been completed.
The on-going works to replace these cables which are expected to complete in
stages this year are as follows:
(a) Jaie, Iboi and Semawang by July;
(b) Sampun/Semera and Sampun Jugu by October; and
supply. In 2011, the average interruption about 9 times per month as
compare with the period from January to April 2012 when no outages were recorded.

Despite the improvements in will continue to undertake
various projects to reinforce The 33kv overhead line from
Rangawang to Kampung Ensengai Iban that forms the second link to supply Sadong
Jaya/Asajaya is now next
month. This second 33kv link will reinforce the supply to Sadong Jaya and improve the
supply reliability to the areas.

SESCo has identified the ageing 11kv aerial bundle cables for replacements to
further improve the supply performance to the areas at Sadong Jaya and Asajaya. The

Tuan Speaker, regarding SEB CEO‘s appointment, the experience, qualifications
of other expatriates and their respective salaries as raised by Ahli Yang Berhormat for
Kota Sentosa, the same issues had also been raised by the same Ahli Yang Berhormat
during the November 2011 sitting and again in this sitting for written reply. These issues

th th

had been dealt with at length in my winding-up speech on 8November, 2010 and 27June, 2011 in this august House. Therefore, I shall not elaborate further on this.

The salary, bonuses and allowances for these expatriates are reflective of the
international compensations required to attract these experts to work in SEB. Under the
contractual terms of engagement, SEB as a corporate entity is bound under the
confidentiality provision not to disclose the terms and conditions including the salary,
bonuses and allowances of these expatriates.

21 MEI 2012

With regard to the … (Interruption) let me finish this okay.

With regard to the foreign consultants, their engagements are based on =as
required‘ basis to undertake specialized areas of the pre-feasibility, feasibility,
engineering design and contract preparation, where hiring of full-time foreign expatriates
will not be cost-effective. This also provides the essential mix of expertise in various
fields required for the successful execution of SEB‘s expansion plan. The simultaneous
engagement of the expatriates and consultants are expected to expeditiously execute
the essential works while providing the opportunity for locals to move up the learning
curves quickly. This provides the platform for effective transfer of knowledge to the
locals without compromising on the planned development for the electricity supply.

I wish to inform this august House that the performance of the CEO of SEB has
been recognised in this region with the honourable award for the .Most Influential Clean
Energy Advocate for 2012. from the Asian Utility Industry following an Asian-wide
selection process. This award reflects not only the outstanding achievement of our CEO,
but fully shows the dedication and hard work of our SEB staff that ensure reliable
electricity supply to all of our Sarawak customers, be it small domestic customers or
large SCORE bulk customers. This is also in recognition of the vision of our YAB the
Chief Minister through the SCORE initiative to attract global investors using the
Renewable Energy in this region. I wish to congratulate the YAB Chief Minister for his
farsightedness in coming up with the SCORE agenda which will propel Sarawak into the
second wave of development towards a high income economy by the year 2020.

Government therefore, SESCo should be answerable to this Dewan. And why is the
salary of all the Government servants are transparent, why they said salaries and
bonuses the SESCo staffs be keep confidential, number one? Why the differential
treatment?
Number two, I was told many of the expatriate engineers working in SESCo are
not even as good as our local engineers, our local experience as engineers. Then, what
justified their triple or quadruple or ten times salary of our local engineers?

is more experienced and competent technically compared to the Ahli Yang Berhormat
for Kota Sentosa.

Tuan Speaker, with regard to the case of a Mr. Matthew Shippey, he was neither

asked to resign nor was he sacked within 24 hours. Mr. Shippey‘s contract had expired

th st

on 9November, 2011 and was extended for a short period until 31December, 2011
as SEB was in the process to appraise the capability of a few local employees to take
over the position. His contract was not extended further as SEB managed to find a
suitable local candidate. There have been seven other locals taking
expatriates. Further, in meeting the challenge that SEB has been tasked,
over from the
150 of them have engineering
ensure no expatriates to stay
cases where locals are found
over 1000
Sarawakians were recruited since 2010, of who over

that we have recruited 1000 local? Ya, may be. May be about, including the Chinese
expatriate at the moment is about 29. Are you happy?
With regard to arrears for meters inspected and charged as raised by Ahli Yang
Berhormat for Kota Sentosa, SEB will only recover the arrears as loss of revenue for the
electricity which was dishonestly abstracted due to tampering. The recovery of loss of
revenue for a period of 36 months is provided under the Electricity Ordinance (Chapter
50) in the event the actual date of tampering cannot be ascertained. Where there is drop
in reading due to faulty or damaged meter without any sign of tampering, SESCo will
recover the arrears based on the past actual consumptions for a period not exceeding
three months.
A clear guideline for the appeal processes has already been established by SEB
and those consumers who are aggrieved and dissatisfied with the alleged electricity theft
or arrears recoveries can submit their appeals to SEB for review of their cases, or even
With regard to the issue of Yu Thien Motor Services Sendirian Berhad which
SEB is fully aware of, this is still an appeal case and therefore no disconnection will be
carried out by SESCo. The disconnection notice was mistakenly issued by the customer
service of the retail department without realizing the court decision. However, the said
notice will be withdrawn. I wish to inform this Dewan that the Government does not
condone power theft.

Telecommunication

Tuan Speaker, in spite of various challenges such as difficult terrains, limited
the
power supply availability in rural areas as well as logistic constraints in many parts of
Sarawak, the Government has been able to increase household broadband
penetration rate significantly in the last three years, from 13.6% in 2008 to the current
47.6%.

the Government has thus far

di kawasan luar bandar tinggal di tempat yang

yang menyebabkan kesukaran dan mahal untuk menggunakan
penyambungan jalur lebar berwayar. Untuk mengatasi cabaran ini, Kerajaan dengan
kerjasama pembekal-pembekal perkhidmatan telekomunikasi menggunakan kaedah
tanpa wayar untuk membawa capaian jalur lebar ke kawasan luar bandar.

In suburban and rural areas, it is a challenge to provide broadband connectivity
to all individual houses due to difficult terrains and sparse population. As an alternative
solution, the government has introduced collective broadband access centres initiative
where community can use broadband service collectively in one premises. As of April
this year, a total of 34 Community Broadband Centres, 33 Mini Community Broadband
Centres and 26 Community Broadband Libraries have been developed across the State
which provide collective access to broadband service.
The populated area coverage for cellular service in the State currently stands at
approximately 84% as compared to only 72% in 2008. With the introduction of TIME 3
Cellular coverage expansion program in late 2010,
developed a total of 84 telecommunication towers and by end of 2012, another 119
telecommunications towers are expected to be commissioned. Mostly located in sub-
urban and rural areas. These telecommunication towers provide 2G cellular coverage
with potential upgrade to 3G services in the future. With the completion of these towers,
other broadband service providers would be able to utilize the structures to expand their
respective wireless broadband services.
Berkaitan dengan perkara yang dibangkitkan oleh Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Sadong
Jaya tentang perluasan perkhidmatan jalur lebar di kawasan luar bandar, Kerajaan
maklum bahawa banyak penduduk
bergunung-ganang
Di bawah inisiatif Kampung Tanpa Wayar, kawasan-kawasan yang tidak
mempunyai kemudahan jalur lebar berwayar akan menggunakan perhubungan satelit
untuk membawa penyambungan jalur lebar. Tiap-tiap lokasi yang ada liputan tanpa
wayar di bawah program ini mampu menyediakan capaian jalur lebar tanpa wayar
sehingga 300 meter radius. Sejumlah 600 tapak telah diperuntukkan di Sarawak di
bawah inisiatif Kampung Tanpa Wayar dengan 210 tapak yang sedang beroperasi

sekarang. Kerajaan merancang untuk menyiapkan pemasangan bagi baki 390 tapak
menjelang hujung tahun ini.

Seperti disebut terdahulu, Kerajaan juga membangunkan ratusan menara
telekomunikasi yang baharu yang menyediakan kemudahan untuk penggunaan 3G dan
perkhidmatan jalur lebar tanpa wayar yang lain seperti WiFi.

Di Kawasan Sadong Jaya, dua tapak Kampung Tanpa Wayar telah dibangunkan
dalam tahun 2011 yang terletak di SMK Pesantren Abdul Taib Mahmud dan Kampung
Semera manakala dua tapak lagi telah disiapkan baru-baru ini di Kampung Jaie dan
Kampung Pelandok Laut.

Berkaitan dengan perkhidmatan selular di beberapa kampung yang disebut oleh
untuk
Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Saribas, sebuah menara telekomunikasi telah dibangunkan di
kawasan Tanjung Assam pada awal tahun ini dengan rancangan meliputi
Kampung Tuie dan Kampung Manggut. Pemerhatian yang dibuat ke atas kekuatan
liputan selular dari menara tersebut menunjukkan bahawa Kampung Tuie dan Kampung
Manggut mengalami tahap liputan yang kurang baik. Untuk menambah baik liputan di
Kampung Tuie, Kampung Manggut termasuk Kampung Supa dan Kampung Medang,
Kementerian saya akan memberi keutamaan untuk kawasan-kawasan ini dilaksanakan
dengan program perluasan liputan selular bagi tahun 2012.

On the issue of unavailability of fixed line and streamyx service in certain areas in
Batu Kawah, I wish to inform Ahli Yang Berhormat for Batu Kawah that Telekom
Malaysia is planning to roll out fixed line and streamyx service in the Third Quarter of this
year in residential areas such as Taman Desa Wira, Putera Park, Taman Summer View,
Taman San Chin, Vision Land, Puteri Park, Taman Moyan Utama, Springville Terrace
and residential premises along Lorong 2F, Jalan Stephen Yong. For shoplot premises in
Batu Kawah New Township area, fixed line and streamyx connectivity is available on the
ground floors in most blocks while for the first to third floors, Telekom Malaysia is in the
midst of negotiating the terms with the relevant developer.
I wish to inform this Dewan that the development of basic telecommunication
infrastructures in Samalaju Industrial Park has progressed very well and the investors
are impressed with this. This is surely in time in meeting the requirements of the
investors particularly Tokuyama (Malaysia) Sendirian Berhad which is expected to
commence operation by end of this year.
The first phase of the project involving the laying of 70 kilometers fibre-optic
cables from Bintulu to Samalaju had been completed. The second phase of the works
involving the last mile access connectivity will only commence upon completion of
Tokuyama‘s communication room targeted in August 2012 and services can then be
provided within two months from the commissioning of Tokuyama‘s communication
room.
Other than providing fibre-optic connectivity, three additional communication
towers are to be erected within Samalaju Industrial Park to supplement the two existing
towers. This will further enhance the quality and expand the coverage of communication
services.

With the completion of this project, a reliable high-speed communication service
can be enjoyed not only by users in Samalaju Industrial Park but also by the local
villages and plantations companies within the vicinity. This will further spur the socioeconomic
activities in the years to come.

Tuan Speaker: Yang Berhormat Menteri Pembangunan Perindustrian. I stand down
your winding-up to tomorrow 9:00 a.m. I shall call upon Menteri Pembangunan
Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan untuk menyampaikan ucapan penggulungannya.

Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Michael
Manyin anak Jawong): Terima kasih, Tuan Speaker. Terlebih dahulu saya ingin
mengambil kesempatan ini untuk merakamkan Setinggi-tinggi Terima Kasih dan
Penghargaan kepada Tuan Yang Terutama Yang di-Pertua Negeri Sarawak atas

Ucapan Tuan Yang Terutama semasa Sesi Pembukaan Dewan yang mulia ini pada 14
Mei 2012 yang lalu.
Saya turut mengambil peluang ini untuk merakamkan penghargaan kepada Ahli-
Ahli Yang Berhormat atas pandangan, saranan dan isu-isu yang ditimbulkan menyentuh
Kementerian saya semasa sesi perbahasan. Saya akan menjawab serta memberi
penjelasan terhadap perkara-perkara yang telah dibangkitkan dengan sewajarnya.
Tuan Speaker, the State has come a long way in infrastructure development and
communications. From a State that relied heavily on riverine transportation in the 1960s,
we have today, an extensive road network of about 29,000 kilometres, covering most
parts of the state. We have also developed modern ports and airports. The growth in
infrastructure network had helped to improve the standard of living and quality of life of
the people in the state and at the same time opened up large areas of land for
agriculture, commercial and industrial development. It had also helped to reduce travel
time and cost and enhanced competitiveness of the State as a preferred destination for
both domestic and foreign investments.
Tuan Speaker, Sarawak is a large state, a whole of Semenanjung Malaysia minus
Negeri Sembilan, that is Sarawak. A large State with an area of about 125,000 square
kilometres and very sparsely and scattered population 2.5 million (2010 census). Our
population density is just about 20 people per square kilometre. In addition, the
topography of Sarawak is rugged in the interior with deep swamp, pit soil and big wide
rivers in the coastal region. All these pose a great challenge to us to provide adequate
and efficient road infrastructure to the people.
My Ministry will continue to spearhead and expedite the development of physical
infrastructure and communication facilities in the state. Focus would be given to extend
the existing road networks to provide necessary access to the rural areas and areas of
potential development to ensure a more balanced development. Efforts would also be
given to expand the capacity and capability of infrastructure in the urban areas to reduce
the increasing congestion problems brought about by rapid urbanisation and to meet the
needs and demands of the commercial and industrial sectors. At the same time, efforts
are also being undertaken to maintain and upgrade the state road network to enhance
safety and quality of travel.

Road Programs under the Ministty of Works (MOW)

Tuan Speaker, my Ministry through the State Public Works Department had
received from the Ministry of Works Malaysia a total federal allocation of RM242,159,485
in 2011 to implement 44 road projects in the State and an expenditure of RM241,299,710
was expended. 26 projects had been completed while the others are still under
implementation.

the cost of RM23 million.
For 2012, the Federal Government had allocated of
RM166,018,540.00 to carry out 20 road projects, including 18 continuation projects. To
date, an expenditure of RM37,814,550.00 had been expended.

Of the 20 projects, five had been completed and 12 are under various stages of
implementation. Some of the on-going projects that are under implementation are:

(1) Pembinaan Jambatan Batu Kawa. This project is divided into two
packages. The first package which was for the construction of the second
parallel bridge had been completed in December, 2011. Construction of
the second package, which included the design, construction and
completion of repair works to the existing Batu Kawa Bridge and the
construction and completion of the approach roads and associated works

Vehicle Registration

Tuan Speaker, in tandem with the increase in road network,
population and the vast improvement in the standard of living, vehicle ownership had
been increasing steadily. According to statistics from the Road Transport Department,
there were 81,147 new vehicles registered with the Department in 2011.

Road Safety

Tuan Speaker, based on statistics from the Police Department, the total number
of road accidents recorded in the state had increased from 17,253 cases in the year
2010 to 17,964 cases in 2011, an increase of 4.12%.

Of 17,964 cases recorded in 2011, a total of 1,414 cases involved deaths,
serious injuries or light injuries, that is 391 cases of fatal accidents, 234 cases of serious
injuries and 406 cases of light injuries. The 391 cases of fatal accidents had resulted in
442 deaths. That is equivalent to 3.24 deaths per 10,000 registered vehicles or 17.96
deaths per 100,000 of the population.

Of the 442 deaths recorded, 43% were motorcyclists (165 deaths) or their pillion
riders (26 deaths); 27% were motor car drivers (65 deaths) or their passengers (56
deaths) and 8% were pedestrians (38 deaths).

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat, fatal accident rates for Malaysia
were higher compare to Sarawak despite to better road in Peninsular Malaysia to give
an example in 2010 fatal accident rates for Malaysia was 3.4 deaths per 10,000
registered vehicles and 24.9 feet per 100,000 population compare to 2.88 deaths for
10,000 registered vehicles and 15.08 deaths per 100,000 population for Sarawak.

Tuan Speaker, looking from a wider perspective of the traffic accidents cases
over the last 10 years period from 2001 to 2011, the total number of road accidents
recorded in the state had increased from 10,721 cases in the year 2001 to 17,964 cases
in the year 2011 which was an increase of 67%. The main factors may be attributed to
the increased road network and connectivity, increase in the number of drivers and road

users and increase in the number of registered vehicles.

However, despite the increase in the total number of road traffic accidents over
traffic accidents the last 10 years as mentioned earlier, the total number of road
involving deaths, serious injuries and light injuries had actually decreased from 1,959
cases in 2001 to 1,414 cases in 2011, i.e., a reduction of 27%. This positive reduction
measures
indicated that Sarawak is actually moving forward in line with the national target, which is
to prevent or reduce accident injuries.

Tuan Speaker, the Government is taking various to promote road

safety in the state. Apart from regular enforcement activities by the enforcement
agencies, various road safety programs have been implemented as follows:
(1) Formal teaching of Road Safety Education (RSE) modules at all primary
schools in Sarawak since 2008;
(2) Introduction of co-curricular RSE activities in primary and secondary
schools since 2008;
(3) National Service‘s RSE advocacies for all intakes at eight camps in
Sarawak. Up until 2011, more than 35,200 participants had been exposed
to one day RSE module;
(4) Annual Education Shell traffic games at the divisional, state and national
level involving over 3,000 primary and secondary students every year;
and
(5) Road safety campaigns and activities especially during major festive
seasons.
Tuan Speaker, Ahli-Ahli Yang Berhormat, road safety is our joint responsibility.
Please join us to promote road safety, be you a member of the opposition or the ruling
party in this august House. Make road safety a talking point during your meet-the-people
sessions. Your concern and your contribution can make a big difference.

natural.

Tuan Speaker, the responsibility to ensure is never of the
Government Agencies alone. The cleanliness of our rivers is the responsibility of all of

us. The Board believes that without the co-operation and involvement of the local
communities ensuring the cleanliness of our rivers, all efforts would not be successful.
As at 31st March, 2012, the Board has organized six programs and 21 community
related activities for promotion of conservation, protection and restoration of rivers
involving 14 kampongs, long houses and seven schools throughout the State.
Tuan Speaker, Sarawak Rivers Board continues to give emphasis on the safety

dialogues for the public and school children.
Issues Raised By Ahli-Ahli Yang Berhormat
I shall now answer to the comments and issues raised by Ahli-Ahli Yang
Berhormat during their debate in the past few days as well as in their oral questions
wherever is relevant.
The First Trunk
Quite a number of Ahli Yang Berhormat raised their concerns about the First
Trunk Road, which many had referred to it as the Pan Borneo Highway. Actually we don‘t
have any highway, we only have trunk road.
The first trunk road was finally linked with bridges in 2006 after the completion of
the Batang Rajang Bridge at Durin. This road forms the backbone of our state network. I
am fully aware of the wishes of the people to upgrade the road into a dual carriageway.

Having a dual carriageway for the whole of the first trunk road would be ideal for
Sarawak and for Sarawakian. In fact, I have pursued this with the Federal Government
quite a number of times and my predecessors had also all done the same. The Federal
Government had responded to our requests and approved allocations for its construction
abide in phases.

59


BELUM DISUNTING

21 MEI 2012

To date, five stretches of the first trunk road with a total length of 137 km have
already been upgraded to four lanes. These are as follows:

(1) Kuching/Serian —
52km;
(2) Sibu/Julau Junction —
29km;
(3) Bintulu/Bintulu Airport —
23km;
(4) Miri/Miri Airport —
9km; and
(5) Miri/Lutong/Kuala Baram —
24km.
The total of 137km.

My Ministry, through JKR, had conducted the study and had submitted a proposal
to the Federal Government to upgrade the road to a dual carriageway with an estimated
cost of RM16 billion.

I have also personally met with the Minister of Works, Malaysia and the Minister
in the Prime Minister Department in charge of Economic Planning Unit. Apart from that, I
and most
have also written to Yang Amat Berhormat Prime Minister and Yang Amat Berhormat
Deputy Prime Minister and met them personally during their visits to the State to put
forward our case to upgrade the road to a dual carriageway. I have done this relentlessly
on many occasions also. It is therefore, not true unfair to say that the

Government was not sensitive to the rakyat and did not bring up the matter. All of us
want it to the dual carriageway just like you in opposition. No, I just go ahead. I have not
finish on this issue.
We have been informed that the proposal for a dual carriage way could not be
considered yet in view of the traffic volume which is 10,000 vehicles per day on average
and did not meet the criteria set, that is 20,000 vehicles per day. This criteria is set by the
Federal Government and not by me as mentioned by the newspaper of late.
Tuan Speaker, as a temporary alternative, my Ministry had come out with a
proposal for the construction of overtaking lanes of 1km at every 8km intervals. A total of
95 overtaking lanes of 1km length at 8km intervals with a project cost of RM380 million
had been submitted to the Federal Government for consideration.
The Federal Government had approved an allocation of RM22.5 million towards
the construction of overtaking lanes at 10 localities. Construction works are expected to
commence at the second half of this year.
Ahli-Ahli Yang Berhormat, I do acknowledge that our roads are not comparable to
the highways in the Peninsular but this should not be an excuse for accidents. In fact,
statistics show that more traffic accidents actually occur at good straight roads where
people are travelling at very high speed. Being a responsible driver, one should always
be alert when driving and be extra careful on the road.
It is thus necessary, therefore, that all drivers should practice the concept of
defensive driving technique which is defined as doing everything possible to avoid
accident. It is also sometimes described as using the road in a manner that ensures your
safety and that of others in implies your full knowledge of the road traffic rules and
applying them when necessary as well as being prepared to compensate for the action or
in action or wrongly action of other road users in order to avoid a crash. The concept has
to do with three major features of human being;

(i) His physical health and attributes;

Kampung and Rural Access Road

Tuan Speaker, many rural roads to kampung and longhouses were constructed
from allocations under the MRP (Minor Rural Projects) to provide connectivity and
accessibility to the nearest service centers.

I have announced in this august House before that the Federal Government had

agreed to relax the registration of these kampong roads in the state under MARRIS
(Malaysian Road Record Information System) and be eligible for road maintenance
grant. The minimum carriageway width to qualify for MARRIS grant now is 2.44 meters
instead of 4.27 meters.
To date, JKR and the Local Authorities had successfully registered 9,221
kilometers of kampong roads throughout the state.
I wish to urge all Ahli Yang Berhormat to liaise with the Divisional or District JKR
Offices to ensure that all kampong/longhouse roads that meet the criteria, i.e., a
minimum carriageway width of 2.44 meters, are registered under MARRIS.

Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal

dibangkitkan oleh Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Batu Kawah, saya ingin menekankan
bahawa isu di sini bukanlah siapakah yang mengeluarkan lesen tetapi lori-lori yang
membawa muatan berlebihan (overloading) sehingga merosakkan jalan. Bagi mengatasi
masalah ini, saya telah mengarahkan Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ) dan Lembaga
Pelesenan Kenderaan Perdagangan (LPKP) untuk meningkatkan penguatkuasaan.
Kerajaan menggalakkan orang awam memberi maklumat dan melapor aktiviti lebih
muatan kepada agensi-agensi berkenaan untuk tindakan. Di samping itu, saya telah
dimaklumkan bahawa pihak JKR sedang menjalankan kerja-kerja pembaikan bagi jalan
tersebut.

Berkenaan dengan kerja-kerja menaiktaraf Jalan Ulu Krian dan Jalan Ulu Awik,
saya ingin memaklumkan Ahli Yang Berhormat bagi Krian bahawa Kerajaan
Persekutuan telah meluluskan peruntukan sebanyak RM18 juta untuk kedua-dua jalan
tersebut. Tender dijangka dapat dikeluarkan pada bulan Jun 2012.

For the information of Yang Berhormat for Engkilili, Jalan Stuga/Empelam/Sri
Aman is part of the 24.6 kilometers Jalan Basi. The survey and design works for the
project has been completed. The approved Tenth Malaysia Plan provision of RM12
million is sufficient only for the construction of the first 2.5 kilometers of road including
one bridge which is to be tendered by the end of this year.

With regards to upgrading of the 11km Jalan Simpang Lidong/Tisak/Nanga
Skrang which is part of the proposed Jalan Sri Aman/Lidong/Betong. JKR put up a
proposal to the Ministry of Works Malaysia for consideration in the Tenth Malaysia Plan
to include a 30m span RC bridge across Sungai Tisak at KM 3.50 to replace the existing
nine span belian bridge. But it was not approved.
Regarding to the request for a suspension bridge to be built across Batang Ai
Hilir, linking Rumah Pendi, Empelam to SK Empelam, I advise the Ahli Yang Berhormat
to forward the proposal to the District Office for consideration under Projek
Penyelenggaraan Infrastruktur Asas (PIAS) and Projek Penyelenggaraan Infrastruktur
Awam (PIA).
For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Pantai Damai, LCDA is currently
planning for the Darul Hana Redevelopment Project at the area along Jalan Brooke and
the bridges along Jalan Brooke are to be incorporated into the project. It is therefore
hope that this will be done in the near future, in short times.
On the issue of street lights as raised by Yang Berhormat for Meradong and
Pelawan, I wish to inform that the estimated cost for the installation of street lightings is
RM 200,000 per kilometre where SESCo supply is available. In the rural areas with no
SESCo supply, the cost is much higher. In addition, there is the electricity bill to settle.
The state road network is about 29,000 kilometres now and is increasing. Therefore, we
can only carry out the installation in phases.

For the information of Yang Berhormat for Meradong, street lightings had been
installed along most of the stretches of the trunk road with dual carriageway as well as in
the cities and major towns. JKR will continue to install more street lightings in stages
with priority to areas of higher population and traffic volume, subject to availability of
fund … (Interruption)

Tuan Speaker: Ahli Yang Berhormat for Kota Sentosa, you sit in your chair, you don‘t
move around. This is not a market place. Go and sit there. Behave yourself in this
august House. You are …
(Inaudible) the quorum in this House. If you want to discuss

anything you can go out not inside the House here. Okay, not here, you can go outside
and ask her. Two or three times already I have been noticing you been doing that,
without any respect for this august House. There is no decorum of, you to walk around.
Yes, I make that ruling here. Westminster is different because they are only …
(Inaudible). You sit on your chair there. You sit down. Please sit down.

Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Michael
Manyin anak Jawong): Tuan Speaker, I am sure the Governments of Selangor or Pulau
Pinang are also carrying out the installation of street lights in phases based on priorities
subject also to availability of fund.
Tuan Speaker, on the subject of rest stops along the First Trunk Road, I wish to
(Temudok, Layar,
Siburan, Baki, Tarat, Serian, Setapang,
to improve and upgrade them
inform the member for Maradong that currently there are 17 rest stops along the First
Trunk Road, out of which, six are provided by the Government
Saratok, Sebangkoi, Simpang Bulat and Bekenu) and 11 by the private sectors. This is
excluding the towns along the way such as
Selangau, Tatau, just to mention a few.

My Ministry is currently assessing the needs
before putting up a concrete proposal to the Government.
problem. The problem
may be keen are
to take
recommendations include the following:
Reduction in the fees for driving tests;
Obviously, this will take a
while to realise it.

Tuan Speaker, Ahli Yang Berhormat for Kidurong raised the issue of the lack of
lorry drivers in the State. I wish to inform this august House that bus operators in the
state also complaint of the same arises mainly because
nowadays, less and less number of our urban youths is keen to take up the profession
due to better education and other abundant lucrative job opportunities. On the other
hand, the rural youth who burdened by the relatively high costs
because apart from the fees charged by the training institutes and fees for driving tests,
there is the extra cost of accommodation and subsistence as the driving institutes are
located only in the urban areas.

My Ministry, through the Malaysia Road Safety Council, had proposed to the
Federal Government measures to address the problem. Among the

Increase frequency of driving tests; and

(3)
Extension of existing human resources training programs and loan
facilities (such as PTPTN) to include training of heavy vehicles drivers.
In this respect, I would also like to urge our bus and lorry operators to consider
paying higher salary and incentives to make the profession more look attractive.

Regarding the frequent flash flood at Mile 5, Tun Hussein Onn road, at the
entrance of Beverly Hill Housing Estate, the problem is caused by the surrounding
development and insufficient capacity of the existing culvert to take the runoff volume
from the said development areas. My Ministry is proposing to improve the overall
drainage system at an estimated cost of RM4.5 million. The proposal will be submitted to
the Federal Government for consideration.

For the information of Ahli Yang Berhormat for Pujut, the street lightings along
Kuala Baram road were interrupted due to frequent thefts of cables. Currently, SESCo is
carrying out reinstatement works.

Regarding the upgrading of Tudan Road, my Ministry has submitted a proposal
to upgrade the 3.4 km road to dual carriageway under the Rolling Plan 3 of RMK-10 with
an estimated cost of RM27.2 million.

With regards to the Tanjung Manis/Sarikei road as raised by the Ahli Yang
Berhormat for Repok, I wish to inform that the proposal was put up for consideration
under the Second Rolling Plan of Tenth Malaysia Plan but unfortunately was not

approved.

As for the Baji/Merudu Road, it was constructed some 29 years ago with the
no
written consent of the landowners, therefore, the issue of compensation does not arise. I
have here the written consent, wait first, wait first, let me finish, you listen, I have here
the written consent towards the things I mentioned here, make claim for crops
affected by the road construction. Make no claims for the land acquired for the road
construction, signed by David Teng Lung Chi, signed by all the landowners here, every
one of them, here.

Tuan Speaker: You give way?
Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): Okay.
Y.B. Dr. Wong Hua Seh: Sorry, I am not querying about this landowners‘ consent. What
I am asking for is this road to be upgraded into a JKR road because if it is not upgraded
into a JKR road, then the land along the road could not be developed so that is the main
concerned for landowner along the road because it is very near to the town so they want
to develop the land, at this moment I am not arguing about the land compensation,
Honorable Minister.
Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): Okay. Thank you, Tuan Speaker, what we read from the
hansard is that it involved compensation, so that is why I put it in here that compensation
does not arise at all.
Tuan Speaker: Okay the Minister has answered you.
Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): So that was built 29 years ago. Okay, thank you. On the issue of
the Lanang Bridge toll… (Interruption)
Tuan Speaker: Honourable Minister, did you give way to Honourable Member for Batu
Kawa?

Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): No.

Tuan Speaker: No.

Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): On the issue of the Lanang Bridge toll as raised by the Ahli

Yang Berhormat for Bukit Assek, as far as my Ministry is concerned, the whole proposal
is still under study. In this regard, we are not only studying the proposal for the Lanang
Bridge, but also the toll at Tun Salahuddin Bridge in Kuching, because there are two tolls,
three tolls actually, one in Kuching, one in Lanang and one in Miri but we are
concentrating on the two that is Lanang and Kuching, so it is not going to be just one.

Regarding the Sungai Sian ferry ramp as raised by Ahli Yang Berhormat for
Meradong, JKR officers had investigated and concluded that the existing ramp can only
cater for small motor launches (tut-tut) carrying only passengers and motorcycles. It was
not designed to cater for ferrying and heavy vehicles…(interruption)

Tuan Speaker: Honourable Minister, are you giving way to the?

Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B.
Manyin anak Jawong): I just want to wait … (Inaudible)
Dato Sri Micheal
you give me… (Inaudible) It is


so unfortunate after I answered in the Dewan the oral question; Ahli Yang Berhormat for
Meradong raised this to the press. It is here, in Sin Chew, I don‘t read Chinese but I
subscribed two Chinese newspapers, I don‘t read Chinese but I subscribed two Chinese

newspapers because my other half, my other half, does read Chinese. So it is stated

here, so I would like to explain that they were ramp, we don‘t called them ferry ramp, they

were ramp at Sungai Sian. And where is she when my Ministry received some request so

that ferry be operated at Sungai Sian. So, upon receiving that request, my Ministry
directed JKR at Sarikei to look into the request and whether the ramp are suitable and
structurally fit for ferry so the result that we received, the feedback that we received is
that the ramp which was built by R&DO is not structurally designed for ferry or for vehicle
like lorries and buses or even cars so that was the reason why JKR decided to build
another ramp in view of putting a ferry service in Sungai Sian. So, I hope that Ahli Yang
Berhormat for Meradong stop telling the public that we are wasting money. Yes…
(Interruption)
Y.B. Cik Ting Tze Fui: Thank you, Tuan Speaker, concerning the Sungai Sian ferry for
ramp raised by Honourable Minister although I didn‘t mentioned it in my speech at all, so
since you have mentioned it, I reply…(Interruption)
Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): No, it is here. Why you… (Interruption)
Y.B. Cik Ting Tze Fui: So, you taking your time to reply it, Honourable Minister.
Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): No, it is here. This one, in the newspaper.
Y.B. Cik Ting Tze Fui: Anyway, why? Why? Why is such a need to build one which is
you know that cannot carry a vehicle and only can carry bicycle, motorcycle. Then what
for you build one, by R&DO?

Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): Tuan Speaker, as I said that one was made for motorcycle,
made for passengers that were built by R&DO, not built by JKR, but yes, it has a
purpose. It has a purpose. But here you are so mischievous, putting in the newspaper
saying that Government is wasting money.

Tuan Speaker: Honourable Member, I think the Honourable Minister has explained.

Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): Want me to tell the truth? Tuan Speaker, if they don‘t want the
ferry, we can stop. Don‘t supply the ferry. That‘s all.

Tuan Speaker: Honourable Member.

Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal

Tuan Speaker: Honourable Minister, just move on. They don‘t understand English. Move

Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal

Tuan Speaker: Honourable Minister, please proceed. Just proceed. Order, order please,
order please.
Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): That‘s why don‘t just come to the press and put all this in the
newspaper. Tuan Speaker, in response to the people‘s need and request, and in the
spirit of Rakyat Didahulukan, Pencapaian Diutamakan, People First, Delivery Now, for
the Government has decided to construct a new ramp that caters for ferrying and heavy
vehicles at Sungai Sian.
Tuan Speaker, as in the previous sittings, there are many other suggestions and
requests brought up by Ahli-Ahli Yang Berhormat including the Ahli Yang Berhormat for
Opar, Saribas, Batu Danau, Krian and Tamin especially with regards to the upgrading of
roads and road connectivity to the rural and interior areas. Due to its vastness, we
cannot deny that many areas in Sarawak are lacking connectivity in terms of road
accessibility although in many areas, rivers are the main mode of transport.
It is my Ministry‘s vision to ensure complete connectivity by the year 2030 to
more than 5,000 villages spread throughout Sarawak. My Ministry would also work
closely with the central planning agencies both at the Federal and State levels to ensure
that infrastructure projects are carried out orderly, effectively and efficiently. This sort of
planning and implementation could take a few years but as the saying goes, .Rome is
not built in one day.. The Ministry and JKR will always rise to the challenge.
Tuan Speaker, before I conclude, I wish to take this opportunity to thank your
good self for your indulgence and well-managed proceedings of this august House.
Wait, I finish first. I would like to take this opportunity to quote my heartfelt gratitude to
all civil servants, Dewan Undangan Negeri staff, Stenographers, and those involve
towards the session of full conduct of this august House sitting, not forgetting my

fellow… (Interruption)

Y.B. Encik Chiew Chiu Sing: Thank you, Tuan Speaker, Honourable Minister, I raised
the question of the junction at Daiken Road and Kidurong Road which is so significant
because there are no traffic lights and the traffic is so heavy
Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): That one I purposely don‘t answer because it is not under my
purview, it will be answer by my colleague, so we have already sent that question to my
colleague.
Y.B. Encik Chong Chieng Jen: Thank you, Tuan Speaker, thank you Honourable
Minister.
Menteri Pembangunan Infrastruktur dan Perhubungan (Y.B. Dato Sri Micheal
Manyin anak Jawong): Make sure it is relevant.
Y.B. Encik Chong Chieng Jen: Of course it is relevant. I raised a question on this the
monopoly of road building contract by CMS Quarry Sendirian Berhad. Is that under your
purview I don‘t see any answer relating to the issue that I raised. There was a contract
signed by JKR with CMS Quarry Sendirian Berhad. Whereby supply and delivery of
crush aggregate to various division in Sarawak on and as and when based required
basis and that contract started in 2006 and in 2010, the contract was extended to all
other construction work relating to road construction even painting… (Interruption)
