PENANG exco Jagdeep Singh Deo is spot on in saying that it is time to stop developers from funding their own Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) reports as there is a clear conflict of interest.

I would suggest that the relevant ministry set up an agency such as a survey board. All EIA report fees should be paid up front to that board before the consultant undertakes his work. Perhaps a scale of fees should be introduced too.
