Committee of Supply 2021 debate, Day 5: Amy Khor on safeguarding public health, sustaining hawker culture(Updated: )
In Parliament on Thursday (Mar 4), Senior Minister of State for Sustainability and the Environment Amy Khor outlined initiatives for safeguarding public health and sustaining hawker culture. One is the environmental sanitation (ES) regime where new mandatory baseline ES standards must be met and premises cleaned proactively. On hawker culture, one scheme facilitates the transfer of stalls and recipes by matching veteran hawkers to aspiring successors. An independent advisory panel will be set up to help engage potential veterans and assess the successors' readiness to take over.
