He said that though various departments were functioning for the supply of pure food items to the citizens but the desired results were not being achieved due to lack of coordination. Shahbaz said that Punjab Food Authority will ensure availability of quality foodstuff to the masses and besides imposition of fine the elements involved in adulteration, short measuring and the heinous trade of substandard items, will also be sent behind the bars. The CM while granting approval to the establishment of the Food Authority also gave instructions for the formation of a committee headed by Provincial Law Minister regarding selection of the members of the authority. The committee will submit its recommendations within 48 hours which will be incorporated in the draft law.

He said that the approval of the Act will help evolve a comprehensive programme for the conservation of cultural heritage in the province. He said that Online Access to the Substantive and Subordinate Legislation Project being initiated for the first time in the countrys history is a revolutionary step for promoting public awareness regarding the laws of government departments. He said that Law and other administrative departments have made commendable efforts for this project and it is also encouraging that Punjab government incurred no expenditure in this regard. He said that after the first phase of the project, the second phase will also be started soon and completed at the earliest. He directed Chief Secretary to extend all out cooperation to the departments concerned regarding the project and a vigorous media campaign should be launched while seminars and discussions should also be arranged for promoting awareness in the people regarding this important initiative of Punjab government.
