Written Reply to Parliamentary Question on shark’s fin served at Public Service events

Parliamentary Sitting: 15 January 2019

Mr Louis Ng Kok Kwang:
To ask the Prime Minister (a) whether sharks fin is still being served at events organised by or for the public service; and (b) whether sharks fin will be served at future events organised by or for the public service.

Written Reply by Mr Chan Chun Sing, Minister for Trade & Industry and Minister-in-charge of the Public Service.

Public agencies abide by the procurement principles of fairness, transparency and value-for-money.  Agencies decide on their respective menus based on what is prudent and appropriate for the occasion.  We do not have policies specific to the serving of shark’s fin.
