The dispute over the cleaning of a Bedok hawker centre was caused by an e-mail sent by the National Environment Agency (NEA), Workers' Party (WP) chairman Sylvia Lim said on Sunday.

In a media statement, she also made public the contents of the correspondence which triggered the saga.

In it, an NEA staff member had written to the WP-run Aljunied-Hougang-Punggol East Town Council (AHPETC) on Feb 7 regarding the cleaning of Block 538 in Bedok.

She wrote: "Pl note that the Hawkers Association will make the necessary arrangements with their contractors on the scaffold erection/dismantling during the spring cleaning period from March 4-8."
