Patrick Tay on Postal Services (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

The Postal Services (Amendment) Bill is a "timely response" to the evolving postal landscape due to the growth of e-commerce deliveries, which have been accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, said MP Patrick Tay. Speaking in Parliament on Monday (Apr 5), he also suggested ways to improve the system. One way is to establish better mechanisms for dispute resolution and mandate the way transactions are carried out. He also raised concerns such as security and technological safeguards, as well as new challenges for postmen and delivery personnel.
