The Members of Parliament in Kualalampur, debating the Electronic Commerce Bill, asked for the proposed legislation to provide better protection to people transacting business through e-Commerce.


Lau Yeng Peng (BN-Puchong) said efforts to promote the development of e-Commerce would be hampered if security measures to protect users were not given proper attention. Security features in e-Commerce transactions were an important element in instilling public confidence in e-Commerce and, at the same time, to encourage its use, he said when debating the bill in the Dewan Rakyat. The bill, tabled by Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Mohd Shafie Apdal, seeks to give legal recognition to electronic messages in commercial transactions. Lau also expressed concern over cyber-information theft incidents and said that they should have been given attention when the e-Commerce bill was being drafted.
