Sylvia Lim on Supreme Court of Judicature (Amendment), Judges' Remuneration (Amendment), Constitution of the Republic of Singapore (Amendment) Bills

(Updated: )

In Parliament on Tuesday (Nov 5), MP Sylvia Lim said the Constitution of the Republic of Singapore (Amendment) Bill and the two related Bills are aimed at restructuring the Supreme Court for better efficiency in light of caseload demands. She said that while the Workers’ Party has queries on the details of the proposed changes, it supports the rationale to restructure the Supreme Court. “If the caseload is efficiently distributed, parties would have less waiting time for appeals, which must be a good thing,” she said. She asked how the change might impact legal costs.
