THE Road Transport Department (JPJ) has been asked to look into the use of yellow plate numbers by Singapore cars in Malaysia. 

Datuk Mohd Ali Hassan (BN – Tebrau) said that, to his knowledge, cars with yellow plate numbers could only be used at certain times in Singapore and such cars should not be allowed in Malaysia. 

He said this after Datuk Mohammad Aziz (BN – Sri Gading) pointed out that yellow plate numbers could only be used by members of the royalty in Malaysia. 

Debating on the motion of thanks on the Royal Address, he commended JPJ for taking action against Singaporean drivers who committed traffic offences in Malaysia. 

On the campaign for monogamy, Mohd Ali’s remarks that he would like to marry another drew laughter from the parliamentarians.  

“You and I are the same, Tun (Speaker Tun Dr Mohamed Zahir Ismail), we each have one wife.” 

“I would like to marry again but what can I do? I love my wife,” he said. 

The Speaker then retorted: “Tak berani kut?” (“Perhaps you are not brave enough?”) 

Mohd Ali also asked the relevant ministry to look into the high prices of tickets for the Formula One race and the “Disney On Ice” show. 

“The tickets are so expensive that only the rich can go.  

“What about those from the lower income group or schoolchildren?” he asked.
