Your MP's Question of the Week #32

When petrol price increases, the prices of goods and food also increase quickly in tandem. But when petrol price is reduced we do not generally see a fast reduction in the prices of goods and food at retail. Consumers therefore are not enjoying the full benefit of lower petrol prices with cheaper products. Continue reading

Tuan Wee Choo Keong [Wangsa Maju]: Terima kasih Tuan Yang di-Pertua. Saya berdiri di sini untuk membahaskan bajet yang historical ini, bukan bajet untuk semasa.

Last week the Government has utilized RM5 billion from EPF to bail out Valuecap in order to support the stock market. Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop has the cheek to give assurance that the RM5 billion loan given by EPF would reap profit. No one seems to know what Valuecap, a new corporate entity, is and who is behind this new entity. Continue reading
