Reporter: Will the Government stop processing some of these applications while considering whether to lodge an appeal regarding this case (judicial review of the Small House Policy)?
Secretary for Development: I think we have said quite clearly that for applications concerning private treaty grant and land exchange, we will not receive further applications and we will also not process further applications during the period when we are considering whether we should lodge an appeal.
