PSP cares about Singaporeans’ livelihoods; so we will raise important questions regarding a wide range of PAP’s trade policies. This will check whether they were, or will be, relevant to Singaporeans.

These parliamentary questions cover employment pass and immigration details over the last 15 years and seek to lift the veil on what has been hidden from the public. PSP will be carefully studying the replies from the PAP ministers.
