Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainuddin said he had discussed with Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani to settle the issue of subsidy payment to the companies involved.

He said there was a slight technical hitch such as incomplete claim forms (from repacking companies).

Hamzah added he had discussed with Johari that to solve the problem, the domestic trade ministry would take over the payment and settlement of subsidy claims to repackers.

He was commenting on the shortage of cooking oil in the market after delivering a 2017 message to members of Angkatan Koperasi Kebangsaan Malaysia Berhad (Angkasa) near here today.

Yesterday, the domestic trade ministry ordered 48 supermarkets in Kelantan to limit the sale of subsidised cooking oil to two kilogrammes per customer to overcome the current shortage in the market.
