Parliament to debate safety of cyclists on Monday
Cyclists and their safety are among the top issues likely to be discussed when Parliament sits on Monday. MPs have filed nine questions on the topic, such as what more will be done to protect cyclists, how to integrate cycling into the traffic system, and whether cyclists will have to undergo road safety training.
Dr Janil Puthucheary (Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC), who wants to know how the Government plans to address the rise in cycling in Singapore, told The Straits Times: “Cycling as a mode of transport has not been adequately addressed."
MPs also continued to table questions on the controversial purchase of the Brompton bicycles by Nationals Parks Board, while some are asking about other issues like governance of Singapore’s interbank lending rate and the funding of Malay/Muslim organisations.
Six bills have also been tabled for debate on Monday. They include proposals to scrap pensions for the President, political holders and MPs, as well as tougher laws for errant employers of foreign workers.
