SDEV speaks to media

Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Development, Mr Paul Chan, at a media session after attending the special meeting of the Legislative Council Panel on Development today (July 26):

Reporter:  Secretary, do you think you are now an obstacle to the Government to move forward the North East New Territory development plan?

Secretary for Development: As I said, my wife has sold her shares in Statement Industries, held by Orient Express, last October. Ever since, she, I and our children do not have any interest in any land in the NENT NDAs (North East New Territories New Development Areas).
