The Select Committee looking into online falsehoods has extended its deadline for the public to hand in written submissions by a week “in response to requests”, said Deputy Speaker Charles Chong, who chairs the committee.
Instead of today, the new deadline is now set for March 7 at 4.30pm.
Centre of Excellence for National Security deputy head Norman Vasu said the deadline extension shows that the committee is interested in canvassing more views, in terms of quantity and variety.
Dr Vasu, who will be writing to the committee, said: “What is interesting is that the committee recognises that it will not stick to a deadline and is willing to extend it to get the most varied views. I personally did not find the original date too problematic, but perhaps it was for some others.”
