Jamus Lim on COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Amendment No. 3) Bill

(Updated: )

The third suite of proposed amendments to the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Act aims to provide additional flexibility for contracts of construction works hit by cost escalations, said MP Jamus Lim. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (May 11), he sought clarifications on the Bill. He asked why other sectors with large numbers of non-traditional source workers are not included for contract re-negotiation and considered for additional support. He said it is more sensible to cover all firms that are able to "demonstrate harm" rather than by economic sector.
