Pritam Singh on Fortitude Budget

(Updated: )

Workers’ Party chief Pritam Singh said Singaporeans have the right to expect a thorough review and accounting of the Government’s response to the COVID-19 crisis. During the debate on the Fortitude Budget in Parliament on Friday (Jun 5), he said some people feel the tactics have lacked clarity and decisiveness. He also said the pandemic has shown that gaps in public crisis preparedness need to be plugged. Mr Singh also asked Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat to share details on comments he made that Singapore’s financial position will be a lot weaker in the coming years.
