Paper for the House Committee Meeting on 23 January 1998

Report of the Parliamentary Liaison Subcommittee

Visit to Singapore


This paper seeks the House Committee’s endorsement of the recommendation of the Parliamentary Liaison Subcommittee that the eleven Members in the Appendix should form the Provisional Legislative Council delegation to visit Singapore.

Visit to Singapore

2. At the House Committee meeting on 9 January 1998, members agreed to accept the invitation from the Singapore Parliament’s Hong Kong-Singapore Parliamentary Friendship Group to visit Singapore from 12 to 15 February 1998. As regards the size of the delegation, members agreed that it should comprise ten Members and one Secretariat staff and that all Members interested in joining the delegation should notify the Subcommittee by 16 January 1998. It was further agreed that the Subcommittee should submit to the House Committee for endorsement a list of the members of the delegation.

3. As at 16 January 1998, eleven Members had indicated interest in joining the delegation. As this number exceeds the proposed size of the delegation by one Member only and would not put a strain on the available financial resources, the Subcommittee recommends that all eleven Members should form the delegation. The Singapore side has been advised and has not notified us of any difficulty.


4. Members are invited to endorse the list of Members in the Appendix.
