What it should have been

In yesterday's report, "Mixed reviews for outgoing SMRT chief's performance", we quoted MP Cedric Foo as saying of Mr Desmond Kuek: "He was then Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Education. Again, he handled it rather well."

Mr Foo was actually referring to Mr Neo Kian Hong, who will be succeeding Mr Kuek as SMRT chief.

We are sorry for the error.
