Parliament discuss food price increase

Channelnewsasia reports in "Increase in prices of food items to be discussed in Parliament" on 9 Nov 2007:
"SINGAPORE: Questions on the increase in prices of food items and the subsequent impact on Singaporeans will be raised in Parliament on Monday when the House sits."
Food issues are increasing in the eyes and ears of Singaporeans but they are only thinking about price and not looking further such as looking into what they can do about the cause of price increase. Solutions will most probably merely involve finding alternative cheaper sources or subsidizing.

That is only curing the symptoms and not the source! Food price will only continue to increase as environmental change strikes globally. What then? I can't wait to hear what is discussed in parliament on Monday.
