Hoon Hian Teck on Constitution and Penal Code Amendment Bills relating to Section 377A

07:03 Min

Not repealing Section 377A of the Penal Code serves to bolster the achieving of the aims of the Government to keep the family form of marriage between a man and a woman as a cornerstone of Singapore's social fabric for as long as possible in the face of many challenges, said NMP Hoon Hian Teck. Speaking in Parliament on Monday (Nov 28), he stressed the importance of the family as the unit that forms the basic structure of society. He believes that keeping the current law serves to provide an "important marker" to preserve the present structure of the family and its supporting institution. "I believe that it is best not to repeal the law," he said.
