Question No. 1072 For Oral Answer
MP: Mr Dennis Tan Lip Fong
To ask the Minister for Manpower what is the rationale for the Ministry’s reluctance to provide a breakdown of the number of foreign domestic workers in Singapore by nationality.
- MOM does not provide a breakdown of the number of foreign workers, including foreign domestic workers by nationality as it is not in Singapore’s interest to do so. Disclosing such detailed data may create sensitivities among certain groups.
