Gan Thiam Poh on Registration of Births and Deaths Bill(Updated: )
Digitalising the registration of births and deaths is "necessary" for Singapore to become a Smart City, as it will strengthen Government agencies’ ability to identify and verify, and therefore deliver better services, said MP Gan Thiam Poh. He asked about data security and whether hard copy records will be kept as a back-up. Noting that babies born here are not automatically granted citizenship, Mr Gan asked if this will change. He spoke in Parliament on Tuesday (Jul 6).
