On 3 April, Dennis Tan Lip Fong posed a parliamentary question to Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower (MOM) on the rationale behind the ministry’s reluctance to provide a breakdown of the number of foreign domestic workers in Singapore by nationality.
In response, Minister of State for Manpower Sam Tan said: “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,” he concluded.
