Date of next meeting

4. Noting that the first regular meeting was tentatively scheduled for 6 November 1996, members expressed concern that there could be a large number of discussion items for PWSC towards the end of the legislative session and suggested advancing the date of the first meeting to 30 October 1996 so that more meetings could be held during the session.

[Post-meeting note : The Administration advised that there would be insufficient discussion papers for a meeting to be held on 30 October. With the concurrence of the Chairman, the first regular meeting will be held on 6 November 1996 as originally scheduled. The LegCo Secretariat will liaise with the Administration on the need to avoid last-minute rushes towards the end of the legislative session.]

5. The Committee was adjourned at 2:20 p.m.
