SDEV speaks to the media
Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Development, Mr Eric Ma, at a media session after attending the Legislative Council meeting today (May 18):
Reporter: But why the (Hong Kong) Housing Society, not the Government itself?
Secretary for Development: As I mentioned earlier, in the initial discussion with the Hong Kong Housing Society, they have identified two potential sites that suit the criteria as mentioned in the Policy Address, such as they are at the fringe of the country parks and the enjoyment of the public is not too high. This is mainly a prima facie situation. So from this initial suggestion, we welcome the Hong Kong Housing Society's suggestion and the Government invited them to take this proposal further. Thank you very much.
