Lee Bee Wah on Building Control (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

MP Lee Bee Wah voiced support for the proposed changes under the Building Control (Amendment) Bill, in light of the surge in the number of lift breakdowns in 2018. She raised concerns over the shortage of lift technicians, saying they may not be adequately trained and may job hop. Speaking in Parliament on Friday (Mar 6), she wanted to know how the Government will ensure that lift technicians focus on fixing the problems thoroughly and not do the job in a hurry to meet the quota of lifts they have to service.
