New Minister of State for MND

There's a new Minister of State for the Ministry of National Development from August 1st, and it's Ms. Grace Fu. Mr Heng Chee How will no longer be with the MND. The MND is the Ministry in charge of the AVA.

As reported by TODAY: Ms Fu — who will take office as MND's Minister of State — said public housing policy was an issue "close to her heart".

I hope it's in her plans to review the idiotic cat ban.

will CWS write to Ms Grace Fu to have her assurance that TRNM that was official endorsed by the outgoing Minister will be honoured by her? the fact is if she's a "people" person (i.e. on-animal lover sort), she's likely to see cats as a "social problem"... that's gonna be bad news for us.

Calsifer - Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources.

Mr Giggles, we will be writing to Ms. Fu once she's settled in - as you may have read, she doesn't take over till August 1st. I do think that just because you're people-orientated, it doesn't mean you have to be anti-animal. Animals bring people a lot of joy - and what's good for the animals is often good for the people. Sometimes people forget that the hidden consequence of the cats being killed is many unhappy caregivers, feeders and even residents who liked seeing them around.
