MP Pritam Singh

Mr Pritam Singh (Aljunied): Thank you, Mr Speaker. Just a question for the Senior Minister of State, in view of the reply to the hon Member Ms Mariam Jaafar. In the last decade, I understand LTA had allowed for the transfer of up to 25% of COEs originally put aside for Cat D motorcycles and allowed them to be transferred to the Open Category. That number then was reduced to 10% and I think now, the transfer is not allowed anymore – or at least, that policy has ceased, that is, the move from motorcycle COEs to the Open Category, to Cat E. 

Can I ask has LTA ever transferred COEs from the open category to Cat D, for the motorcycles, to raise the number of COEs available for motorcycles?

Dr Amy Khor Lean Suan: I would say that, as the Member has pointed out, we have stopped the contribution of the number of the COEs from the motorcycle category, Cat D, into Cat E; whilst the others would have continued to contribute a certain percentage. I stand to be corrected but I do not think that there has been instances where we have actually done the reverse.
