It has not decided what these controls are and is studying what is practised in other countries. BG Yeo made it clear that this will not be a blanket ban on Singaporeans, but more likely one where only members are allowed in. Unconvinced, a resident asked about the seeming contradiction in the Government's plan to limit Singaporeans' access when it acknowledged people already go to Batam to gamble. BG Yeo said the Government cannot stop people who choose to go outside the country to gamble, but it will not make it easier for them by making a casino accessible at their doorsteps.
Have it in the neighbourhood centre,' he said to laughter from the residents. The dialogue capped the minister's walkabout yesterday when he kicked off a soccer match, launched the Bukit Batok East Youth Adventure Club, and officiated at the completion of the Hoover Park Estate Upgrading programme. The reasons are very clear to us: Gambling can be addictive,' he said. Singapore wants to a slice of the action, which was why it plans to link Sentosa with the Southern Islands to develop a world-class resort that may include a casino.
Emphasising that the Government had not yet decided whether a casino would be opened on Sentosa, he said that if there were one, there will be controls in place to ensure that ordinary Singaporeans do not go there and gamble away their 'family money'. We decided on two IRs, because the Bayfront and Sentosa projects complement each other, because having two provides competition and critical mass, and because we believe that two projects will bring more economic benefits, without increasing the social cost commensurately; After weighing the matter carefully, the Cabinet has collectively concluded that we had no choice but to proceed with the IRs.
As Prime Minister, I carry the ultimate responsibility for the decision. Archived from the original on 13 October Retrieved 8 October Channel NewsAsia.

The Government sought the opinion of the people but it does not go along with the opinion of the people and it has now made a unilateral decision. We have to wait and see; Under the current situation, where a party is dominant and the civil society is very weak, the people cannot sway the Government's decision on such a matter that concerns the fate of the people.
If the Government's judgment is wrong, it would lead the nation and our people on to the "river of no return", where the cost would be very real and very heavy. On this issue of integrated resort, this is an issue that has been debated many times, there were a lot of views put up. We have had this discussion over a year. I disagree with Mr Gan Kim Yong. In fact, members of this house had used this house, on many occasions, to express their views and even though we may not have a direct debate, the government has listened to these views and these views would be taken into consideration when we make our decision.
PM had explained that we intend to make a decision before the middle of April. The government had been elected to govern and it had the full mandate to decide on many important issues, for example the GST increase and the CPF contribution changes. All these are issues that, having gone through discussions and taking into consideration the views of the people, the government then had to make a decision. This, I think, is the same for the integrated resort.
And like him, I am a little perplexed why he thinks this ought to be an election issue. As Mr Low Thia Khiang knows, the election is not due until Archived from the original on 7 October The Workers' Party notes that a broad cross section of Singaporean society is concerned about the negative effects of having a Casino literally at their doorsteps. Yet the PAP Government has refused to allow Singaporeans to exercise their right to decide on having a Casino in Singapore through a referendum.
The PAP government has also refused the challenge by the Workers' Party to make the proposed Casino an election issue. Do voters care at all? Analysis News. As Singapore prepares to go to the polls, it appears that the two issues that provoked the loudest outcry last year will have very little impact on the way votes are cast. Last year, everyone had something to say about the go-ahead for casinos as well as the National Kidney Foundation NKF affair; Of the 21 issues put before them, the one that will have the least influence on their vote is the decision to have the casinos.
Eighty-five respondents 54 per cent said that casinos would definitely not matter to them when they voted. This is more than double the number who said the casino issue would "definitely" influence their vote. Senior research fellow at the Institute of Policy Studies Dr Gillian Koh suggested that the Government's slew of social safeguards had managed to assuage the feelings of the nay-sayers.

But they decided not to submit a bid because they would not be able to deliver a development on the scale that they had envisioned for Sentosa while meeting their objectives for this project. So, with less than four days to the deadline for the bids, the field is down to just three.
Archived from the original on 23 October Two new faces will be in the ministerial committee headed by Deputy Prime Minister Prof S Jayakumar to approve the bids. This committee — together with the tender evaluation committee TEC made up of senior civil servants — will review the three bids, said the Singapore Tourism Board.

HK -- the third largest cruise operator in the world -- had been seen as frontrunner for the Sentosa casino due to its long presence in Asia. In a bid to turn itself into a global gaming giant, Genting is already in the process of acquiring British casino operator Stanley Leisure SLY.
L , which operates 45 casinos across Britain. KL runs a casino resort in Malaysia's hill-town of Genting. Genting said it had an agreement with Universal that prevents the entertainment giant from building another theme park anywhere in Southeast Asia for 30 years. Singapore said bilateral relations with Malaysia were not a factor in its decision. The countries have deep economic ties but diplomatic relations are often testy, with the two bickering over everything from water issues to the new design of a bridge between the two countries.
