PARLIAMENTARY RESPONSE TO SUNGEI ROAD MARKET PETITION DEEPLY DISAPPOINTING

There are also some inconsistency and ambiguity with the figures cited in Parliament. Out of the “200 vendors” reportedly engaged by the Government, SMS Khor said “more than 60 are receiving some form of Government assistance”, while a vague “more than 80” indicated they do not require assistance after SRM ceases on July 11. This still leaves “70 or so” vendors who are assessing their options. Simple arithimetics dictates that adding the 3 category of vendors mentioned would exceed the reported 200 “engaged” vendors.

THAT OLD LADY AND HER CPF PART 2

My question then is: Why did the CPF not make an effort to contact her after 1998 when she didn’t respond to it on getting monthly payment? Or in 2012 when it didn’t hear from her after she queried?

PAP MP AMY KHOR: BUT WE HAVE BEEN TALKING TO MADAM IRENE YAP SINCE 2012 TO CLEAR HER DOUBTS ABOUT HER CPF MONIES!

"Thus, it is important for the Central Provident Fund Board to clarify any erroneous perceptions and address public concerns." Both Dr Khor and the CPF Board explained in their statements that the CPF Board had notified Ms Yap four months before her drawdown age in 1998 that she could apply to receive monthly payouts from her RA. The CPF Board said that Ms Yap was in contact with them subsequently to clarify some matters. In 2012, in response to some queries Ms Yap had, the CPF Board reminded her she could start her monthly payouts any time, or withdraw her RA savings in a lump sum, provided she had property to pledge.

"WORRYING" RISE IN HIV CASES AMONG GAY MEN

The Ministry of Health revealed the figures yesterday, which also showed that the number of homosexual and bisexual cases has risen from 166 in 2009 to 247 last year. In contrast, the number of heterosexual men infected fell from 241 to 157 in the same period. Around a decade ago, men who contracted HIV through gay sex accounted for less than 30 per cent of male infections but they now make up more than 60 per cent - making them the main mode of transmission.
