Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean released a statement yesterday saying the Government is ‘not bent on retaining’ ’s house at Oxley Road. DPM Teo who is heading the Ministerial Committee studying the options for the house’s redevelopment/demolition said that he met Mr several times between April and July 2015 on the matter.


Mr Lee however has disputed DPM Teo’s version of events and said that the Deputy Prime Minister, unlike what he implies, met him in his personal capacity and before the formation of the committee.

Mr Lee clarified that the Committee itself did not disclose the options they were considering in their prior exchanges, and that their letters to the Executors of Lee Kuan Yew’s will were “largely focused on parroting (Prime Minister ’s) attacks on the will.

Senior Minister of State for Law Indranee Rajah had earlier cautioned against demolition.

“Once demolished, there is no going back,” she said.

Adding: “Demolition removes once and for all any possibility of future preservation, conservation or compulsory acquisition of the property.”
