PAP MP Lee Bee Wah altruistically defended the government’s move to increase water prices by 30%, claiming that the price increase is only to bring up awareness on the importance of water:

“I think the increase in water prices is just to bring up awareness of the importance of water.”

The PAP MP then praised the government for offering to offset the announced price increase:

“I’m sure there will be families who need help. It’s a good gesture to help.”
