Dear Dr LEONG,
Changing the Chinese name of the Government House to
The decision of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to change the Chinese name of the Government House to
has aroused almost unanimous disapproval among the community.
I propose this issue be discussed at the House Committee meeting on 7 May so that LegCo Members can express their views on the re-naming of this symbolic building. I also hope that the House Committee will urge the Administration to re-consider the re-naming decision and at the same time, to invite the public to give their views on the re-naming proposals.
