Parliament will sit at 1.30pm on Monday (Jan 25) to debate the President’s address. This will be the first sitting of Parliament after various ministries issued their addenda in response to Dr Tony Tan Keng Yam’s speech on Jan 15.
The CPF scheme has served Singaporeans well, but it is also timely to review it in order to enhance retirement adequacy. Several MPs made this point as they thanked the President for his address charting the government's agenda for the second half of its term. Parliament was also given an update on the committee tasked to review the education model at polytechnics and ITE. MPs were told that the committee is looking at how these students can progress upwards even without a degree, or before they get one.
