Committee of Supply 2019 debate, Day 1: Josephine Teo on marriage and parenthood concerns(Updated: )
The National Population and Talent Division will consult Singaporeans on their needs and concerns regarding marriage and parenthood in the coming months, and how the Government and community can better support them. Minister-in-charge of population matters Josephine Teo said this in Parliament on Thursday (Feb 28). She noted parents' concerns over financial costs such as preschool fees, for which subsidies are being reviewed. Mrs Teo also said there is reason to be optimistic about Singapore's fertility rate, given recent trends in marriages and births.
