Leon Perera on Registration of Births and Deaths Bill(Updated: )
With more inter-ethnic marriages in Singapore, MP Leon Perera asked if it was possible for data to be released on the proportion of births to these parents and the proportion who then choose to give their children double-barrelled race designations. He also asked if this classification can be assigned outside the CMIO framework. In Parliament on Tuesday (Jul 6), Mr Perera also wanted to know if next-of-kin might face delays in making funeral arrangements, if medical practitioners are required to register deaths electronically.
