State cost of annual permit for transparency's sake

Culture, Community and Youth Minister Grace Fu's reply to Ms Chua Mui Hoong's commentary is not convincing (Elected MPs pay for annual parking permit; June 4).

It is my understanding that all grassroots and elected MPs have free parking in the constituencies that they are serving.

Ms Fu stated that they have to pay for an annual permit to park at Parliament House and Housing Board carparks but she did not say how much the annual permit costs.

For the sake of transparency, she should state the cost of the annual permit.
