Patrick Tay on COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Bill

(Updated: )

In Parliament on Tuesday (Apr 7), MP Patrick Tay called for security agencies to be covered by relief from legal action if they cannot fulfil contractual obligations. Speaking during the debate on the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Bill, Mr Tay said some agencies find it hard to meet requirements as they have lost access to Malaysian staff during the pandemic. He said security agencies should be given more support and protection as they perform an important public service.
