Joan Pereira on Fortitude Budget

(Updated: )

Consider building bigger HDB flats in future to cater to what will be a permanent trend of people working and studying from home - this was suggested by MP Joan Pereira during the debate on the Fortitude Budget in Parliament on Friday (Jun 5). She also called for more support for young people facing uncertainty as they enter the working world, and help for young families to repay HDB loans during the current COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis. Ms Pereira said the risks of a "lost or traumatised generation" would have consequences for Singapore as a nation.
