Support anti-littering measures


IT IS refreshing to read Keep Singapore Clean Movement chief Liak Teng Lit's frank and forthright comment that we are "a cleaned city, not a clean city" ("S'pore a clean city? Don't joke"; Nov 4).

For some years now, the standard of public cleanliness has been slipping noticeably. This is in spite of campaigns and fines. One has to ask what went wrong, and seek new and fresh remedies.

Mr Liak has suggested some measures that should be fully supported by the authorities and the public, to ensure that our clean city - once internationally recognised and the pride of Singaporeans - is restored.
