Louis Ng on Merchant Shipping (Maritime Labour Convention) (Amendment) Bill

(Updated: )

MP Louis Ng said the proposed changes in the Merchant Shipping (Maritime Labour Convention) (Amendment) Bill will bolster the labour protection for seafarers who are particularly vulnerable to acts of piracy. Speaking in Parliament on Wednesday (Mar 25), he raised queries on how far the protection would extend, such as whether terrorism-linked kidnappings are covered. He also sought clarifications on the Bill.
