SINGAPORE - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is delivering a ministerial statement on the Oxley Road dispute in Parliament on Monday (July 3).

He will respond to the barrage of allegations by his siblings, Mr Lee Hsien Yang and Dr Lee Wei Ling, that he misused his power, in what is likely to be the most closely-watched parliamentary debate in years.

Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean will also deliver a ministerial statement. He will speak on the ministerial committee formed to consider options for the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew's house at 38, Oxley Road, which the two younger Lees have attacked.

MPs across party lines, including those from the opposition Workers' Party and Nominated MPs, have raised questions for the debate. The People's Action Party will lift the party whip, allowing its MPs to speak according to their conscience and be not bound by their party's position.

Parliament will sit at 11am. PM Lee began speaking shortly after question time ended at 12.30pm.
