    1. Motion to be moved by Hon Andrew CHENG Kar-foo

      "That the House Committee deeply regrets that, notwithstanding Members' concerns raised on the incompatibility of the Factory and Industrial Undertaking (Medical Examination) Regulation ("the Regulation") with the Employment Ordinance, the Government has repeatedly neglected such concerns and failed to make appropriate amendments when the Regulation was scrutinized by the Subcommittee on Regulations relating to Occupational Safety and Health, and thus wasted the resources and time of the Legislative Council, rendering the deliberation of the Regulation eventually unfinished by the end of this session."
      (Letter dated 21 June 2000 from the Secretary for Education and Manpower)
