Members of Parliament say they plan to offer more bouquets than brickbats to the Government in this year's Budget debate, which starts today.

That is thanks to the $8 billion Pioneer Generation Package, which has gone down well with people.

Some 50 MPs are expected to join the debate, including Holland-Bukit Timah GRC MP Christopher de Souza, who said: "I think we will see strong support for the Pioneer Generation Package."

Said Mr Cedric Foo, the MP for Pioneer: "MPs generally reflect the public's opinions. The kinds of feedback that I have gotten so far have been positive."
