MPs ask Govt to consider ways of honouring Mr Lee Kuan Yew at Monday's session of Parliament

SINGAPORE - Members of Parliament will ask the Government how Singapore's first prime minister, the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, can be honoured during the next Parliament session on Monday, Apr 13.

According to Parliament's Order Paper, which lists questions submitted by MPs for upcoming Parliament sessions, West Coast GRC MP Ms Foo Mee Har asked if there will be a Founder's Day "to provide Singaporeans the opportunity to remember the struggles of the country in the early years."

Dr Lily Neo (Tanjong Pagar GRC) and Mr Ang Wei Neng (Jurong GRC) will ask Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong if the Government will consider renaming Changi Airport after the late Mr Lee.

Dr Neo will also ask PM Lee if he will consider having Singapore notes and coins bearing Mr Lee's photo.
