Parliament: NDP exco to produce packs for 80% of households; those who want one can collect them from CCs

SINGAPORE - The National Day Parade executive committee will produce packs for about 80 per cent of all Singaporean and permanent resident households, after taking into account those who said they do not need one.

From prior experience, this should be adequate, and people who want the packs can collect them from community centres for National Day, Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen told Parliament on Friday.

Dr Ng noted that the NDP executive committee aims to be inclusive for every NDP, and will take in views and accommodate different interests where possible.

Dr Ng said the packs - dubbed Singapore Together Packs - will include hand sanitisers, among other celebratory items like a full-sized national flag, iron-on patches for masks, face tattoos and a pledge card.

Collection of the packs will start from July 20 at community clubs and residents' committee centres.
