Parliament Sitting on 1 March 2017

QUESTION FOR ORAL ANSWER


*5. Mr Leon Perera: To ask the Minister for Communications and Information what criteria are used to determine the selection of falsehoods corrected on the Gov Factually website.

Answer:

Factually aims to clarify widespread or common misperceptions of government policy, or incorrect assertions on matters of public concern that can harm Singapore’s social fabric. 

2 Over the years, the site has addressed inaccurate assertions about various matters, such as housing, the economy and finance. During the Zika outbreak, we allayed public misperceptions about the virus. This is part of the Government’s efforts to ensure Singaporeans have access to accurate information on important matters.

3 Factually, as its name suggests, concerns itself with facts, not opinions.
