It is stipulated in by-law 28 of the Hawker (Urban Council) By-Laws that the Urban Council may, for the purpose of the charging of fees for the use of fixed pitches by licensees, erect a meter at or on each of those pitches. I sent a letter to the Attorney General in February this year enquiring about the matter, and my enquiry was referred to the Urban Services Department (USD) to follow up. The USD has recently sent me a reply saying that "The Urban Council has never set up such fixed pitches. The keeping of the relevant by-law is to enable the Urban Council to have the legal authority to set up such pitches should there be policy reasons to do so, so as to avoid wasting resources in going through the process of re-enacting the relevant legislative provisions." In this connection, will the Government inform this Council:

  1. of the number of legislative provisions that have been enacted before the actual need for such provisions arises, as in the case of the above by-law;

  2. whether consideration will be given to deleting or amending those legislative provisions which have never been invoked over the past several decades; and

*10. Mr SIN Chung-kai to ask : (Translation)

Regarding the calculation of household income of a public housing applicant, will the Government inform this Council whether it is aware if the Housing Authority will consider revising the existing method of calculating the applicant's income, or relaxing the income limit, so that the applicant's immediate family members in China awaiting approval to settle in Hong Kong would be taken into account when assessing his application for public housing?

Public Officer to reply : Secretary for Housing

*11. Miss Emily LAU to ask :

Given the lack of recreational facilities in the territory, will the Government inform this Council whether there are plans to turn the former Tai A Chau Detention Centre for Vietnamese migrants into a holiday camp; if not, why not?

Environment and Lands

The findings of a survey conducted by the Hong Kong Psychological Association indicate that the people in the territory generally adopt a discriminatory attitude towards new immigrants from mainland China. In this connection, will the Government inform this Council:

  2. how does the Government assess the effectiveness of the activities mentioned in the answer to (a) above; and

  3. given that the findings of the above survey also indicate that many people in the territory are of the view that their share of the social welfare benefits has diminished as a result of the arrival of new immigrants, of the respective percentages of the resources allocated by the Social Welfare Department and the Labour Department for providing services to new immigrants out of the total expenditures of these two departments?

Public Officer to reply : Secretary for Home Affairs

*14. Mr LEE Wing-tat to ask : (Translation)

Recently some property developers, when putting up new flats for sale, provide to home buyers a penalty-free mortgage arrangement whereby home buyers will not be required to pay any punitive charges even if they repay the mortgage loan in full within the first year of drawing the loan. In this connection, will the Government inform this Council whether a study has been conducted to examine if such a mortgage arrangement will further fuel property speculation; if so, whether the Government will issue guidelines to property developers and banks requiring them to levy punitive charges on home buyers for early repayment of mortgage loans?

Public Officer to reply : Secretary for Financial Services

*15. Miss Emily LAU to ask :

It is learnt that the Board of Management of the Chinese Permanent Cemeteries under the chairmanship of the Secretary for Home Affairs has recently granted a sum of $400,000 to three groups in the gay and lesbian community. In this connection, will the Government inform this Council:

Public Officer to reply : Secretary for Transport

The sale of the remaining stock of definitive stamp sheets featuring the Queen's head by the Post Office on 18 March this year attracted many people to queue up overnight outside four post offices.
