MALAYSIA has no intention of using water as a weapon to pressure Singapore into resolving the water price issue, said Deputy Foreign Minister Datuk Dr Leo Michael Toyad. 

He said Malaysia would continue to find a solution to end the deadlock. 

He denied allegations that Malaysia was evasive in the matter. 

“Malaysia has always been consistent in its stance. For instance, it has consistently stressed that it will continue to supply water to the island republic after 2061 based on terms and regulations agreed by both parties,” he told Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang (PAS – Marang). 


THE Health Ministry will take random samples of raw and treated water to ensure that water supplied to the public is safe for consumption. 

Works Minister Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu said the Health Ministry would increase the number of checks if the water supply was polluted. 

He told Tan Kok Wai (DAP – Cheras), that the low quality of water was due to aging and corroding pipes and works to replace burst pipes.
