Kuala Lumpur: Umno Youth is proposing to impose a fee on Singaporean cars entering Malaysia to counter Singapore's decision to increase the Vehicle Entry Permit (VEP) and Goods Vehicle Permit (GVP) permit fee for vehicles entering the republic.Umno Youth Chief Khairy Jamaluddin said Singaporeans are not charged any fees by the Government for cars entering Malaysia, while no action has been taken against those who did not settle their traffic summonses.

"Such action is not fair, because they (Singapore) should reduce and not increase the fee from SGD20 to SGD35 (about RM90).

Why not we too collect some revenue from Singapore cars entering Malaysia," he told reporters after chairing an Umno Youth exco meeting, here, Tuesday.

He said the proposal would be tabled in the Cabinet meeting.

Khairy said Umno Youth would also propose that the Government study a system that would prevent cars that fail to settle their summons, from entering the country, just like the procedure practised by Singapore.

"It is time to act, we are losing in terms of revenue, they don't pay the summons, and when they increased the fee, it was the call for us to act," he said.

Meanwhile, Khairy said Umno Youth would submit a memorandum to state its stand on the proposed National Harmony Act which is set to replace the Sedition Act 1948. - Bernama
