Apologise for speaking in Parliament?

Why waste time on apologies for debates in Parliament – focus on working for Singaporeans? I refer to the article “Grace Fu asks Leon Perera to apologise for ‘false allegations’” (Straits Times, Jan 4).

It states that “Leader of the House Grace Fu yesterday wrote to Workers’ Party Non-Constituency MP Leon Perera, asking that he withdraw his “false allegations” that Mediacorp had deliberately edited parliamentary footage of a debate on changes to the elected presidency.

She also called on Mr Perera to apologise at the parliamentary sitting next Monday for misrepresenting the facts and misleading Parliament during an earlier sitting on Nov 7 last year.”
