Louis Ng on Environmental Protection and Management (Amendment) Bill

The Environmental Protection and Management (Amendment) Bill tackles two distinct but important problems of noise and greenhouse gases, said MP Louis Ng. Speaking in Parliament on Monday (Sep 13), he said it empowers the National Environment Agency to ensure that construction sites remain quiet on Sundays and public holidays, and enables the Government to better mitigate climate change. He also sought clarifications on the Bill. He wanted to know how the Government plans to train and test the workforce for carrying out works related to greenhouse gases. He also asked if the Government can put in place stricter construction noise limits on Saturdays.
