The Budget 2022 debate saw the highest level of participation in the last five years, despite fewer MPs attending parliament as several of them contracted COVID-19. Debate on the government's fiscal policy and the expenditures of every ministry took a total of 73 hours. In her wrap-up speech, Leader of the House Indranee Rajah called this Budget an "unusual and memorable" one because it took place amid a pandemic and the war in Ukraine. On the healthcare front, Speaker of Parliament Tan Chuan-Jin said Singaporeans had put their trust in healthcare authorities during the pandemic. \r
