Melvin Yong on Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

"Touch wood" or "choy!" - these are words that crop up during conversations on the Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA), said MP Melvin Yong. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Jul 6), he said more should be done to de-stigmatise issues associated with LPAs. He said it is encouraging to see an increasing number of LPA applicants in recent years but they remain a small minority. He called for more to be done to remove the stigma linked to LPA applications. He asked the Government to share its plans to reach out to more Singaporeans on the importance of LPAs.
