LETTER SENT TO PERMANENT SECRETARY, MINISTRY OF INFORMATION, COMMUNICATION & THE ARTS, SINGAPORE
About a year ago, I had written to you and suggested that the Ministry of Information, Communication & the Arts and/or the Media Development Authority should consider making their replies to issues raised in the press available on their respective websites. Your team then replied the suggestion will be looked into. One year on, it appears this idea has not been taken up.
Letters to the press often raise important concerns regarding our media's regulatory landscape, and it is in the interest of high-profile bodies such as the Ministry of Information, Communication & the Arts and/or the Media Development Authority to make their letters to the press available on the relevant websites. This to also follow the example set by other government bodies such as the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
I hope your team will re-consider this suggestion.
