Mr Kok Heng Leun
Nominated Member of Parliament
To ask the Minister for Social and Family Development over the last 10 years, what is the number of children born in Singapore who:
(i) do not have a father named on their birth certificate, and
(ii) have a father named on their birth certificate but the parents are not married on or before the date of registration of birth.
From 2006 to 2015, there was a drop in the number of babies born each year to citizen mothers who were not married to the father of the child at the point of birth registration.
The further breakdown by whether the father’s name is reflected in the birth certificate is as follows:
|(i) Single Parent Registration Births by citizen mothers
|(ii) Births by citizen mothers who were not married to father named in the child's birth certificate at point of birth registration
