Why It Matters
Duration: 10:30 mins
Synopsis: In this new podcast series for 2018, The Straits Times takes a close look at one key news talking point each week.
Recent remarks by National Development Minister Lawrence Wong that the Government is looking into the ageing Housing Board flat lease issue have been mostly welcomed by observers of the housing and property scene here in Singapore. This, even as as concerns remain over the fate of older flats.
What could be the possible scenarios and solutions to consider, for both the Government and Singaporeans? Are there more ideas being explored?
Host and ST's deputy news editor Jeremy Au Yong dissects the issue with ST's political correspondent Ng Jun Sen and housing correspondent Grace Leong.
