PRIME Minister Lee Hsien Loong marked the end of the Budget debate with a post on Medishield Life, which he said is a key initiative to strengthen social safety nets.

After seven long days of scrutinising the budgets of the ministries one by one, he also set down on Thursday night his thanks to ministers and Members of Parliament.

He went online to thank "all MPs for their active participation", for questioning ministers, raising issues, and championing ideas they feel passionate about.

He also thanked the ministers for "working hard to listen, reassure, and explain".
