6 of 124 questions on the house – all from WP?


I refer to the article “5 things to look out for in the July 3 Parliament debate on the Oxley Road dispute” (Straits Times, Jul 3).

It states that “MPs, elected and nominated and from both sides of the House, have filed questions on the issue and have indicated that they will speak during the session.”

I think there may be something not right about the above statement, as according to the order paper for Parliament on 3 July – there appears to be only 6 out of the 124 questions – that are related to 38 Oxley Road – and all are from the Workers’ Party’s MPs?
