The Ministry of Ecology, Geology and Natural Resources, together with regional akimats, was also proposed to amend the Rules for haymaking and grazing in the lands of the State forest fund, so that the local population could use unused forest lands for grazing and forage.
Upon consideration results of the second task group, it was decided to recommend to the Ministry of Agriculture to develop a new provision of the Land Code, prohibiting construction of residential buildings on the cultivated areas of individual subsidiary farms, as well as provide for a novelty prohibiting members of regional land commissions from participating in competitive meetings on land acquisition in relation to their relatives.
