PAP Minister, Ms Grace Fu, is reported to have said: “It’s not just any YouTube video. It crosses the red line on religion. But I think that Amos Yee is not doing himself or his family any favors.

However, I am annoyed by the slothfulness of your department as you failed to exhibits any form of basic courtesy to keep me informed.

Grace Fu: In hawker centres, Govt’s main objective is affordable food

The Government is studying different models for vibrant and viable hawker centres, but its main objective is affordable hawker food. And while hawkers determine the prices charged for food, the Government can shape the costs they face through sensible policies, said Second Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Grace Fu today (March 11). A steady supply of several hundred hawker stalls over the next few years, as 10 new hawker centres are built, will keep a lid on rental pressures. Two in Bukit Panjang and Hougang will be completed next year, and another five hawker centres will begin construction this year, she said in Mandarin in Parliament.
