Committee of Supply 2019 debate, Day 1: Louis Ng on childcare leave based on number of kids(Updated: )
“It is now not just money not enough, but also time and leave not enough,” said MP Louis Ng as he made the call for more support for young parents in Parliament on Thursday (Feb 28). Parents with more children should get more childcare leave, he said. Mr Ng said the number of days of childcare leave does not correspond with the number of children a couple has. Parents with four children would need more leave days, compared with those with one child. He asked if it is possible to grant childcare leave on a per-child basis.
