Transcript of SDEV's remarks at media session

Following is a transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Development, Mr Paul Chan, at a media session after attending a radio programme today (January 26):

Reporter: Mr Chan, how do you feel about not being prosecuted for drunk driving?

Secretary for Development: Well, I respect the decision of the Department of Justice. After this event, I have reflected deeply and I understand that the people of Hong Kong have certain expectations on the conduct of Principal Officials. I will stay alert and vigilant. I also agree that after drinking, one should not drive. I will be a lot more careful in the future.
