A letter I wrote to ST after I received the letter from CPF..
Date: Wed, 16 Apr 2008 18:18:31 +0800 (CST)
Subject: ST Forum - GST Credits - Why our childrens are forgotten
According to the Government, the recent GST Credits were given “to help Singaporeans cope with the 2% GST increase from 1st July 2007″. I was given $200 GST Credits this year, which I believe is what most Singaporeans are getting.
However, I am a mother of two, and my children are not entitled to GST credits. Why have our young been forgotten? Our dependents should also be entitled to GST rebates for milk powder, diapers, health care costs, childcare services, school fees, textbooks, etc.
If the Government wants to encourage its citizens to procreate, why are our young children exluded from the GST rebates, leaving parents bearing the brunt of the GST increase?
How can the Government claim to have introduced a comprehensive GST Offset Package in Budget 2007 when our young have been forgotten?

Thank you for writing to us. We do appreciate your making the effort.
We receive up to 70 letters each day. Limited space means we can publish only about a dozen every weekday.
This means having to make often-difficult editorial judgments on which letters to publish.
We regret we are unable to publish your letter.
If your letter relates to a matter under the purview of a government department, you may want to visit
www.sgdi.gov.sg for a list of officials to contact.
