Saktiandi Supaat on Children and Young Persons (Amendment) Bill(Updated: )
MP Saktiandi Supaat supported the move to better protect young persons under the Children and Young Persons (Amendment) Bill. Speaking in Parliament on Wednesday (Sep 4), he also sought clarifications on the Bill. One issue revolves around the manpower demands that are likely to arise with the changes. He asked how many more welfare officers would be needed to cope with the higher number of cases to handle. He also asked if a new team has to be set up within the Ministry of Social and Family Development to handle cases.
