    • Secretary for Justice Wong Yan-lung yesterday defended the government’s proposal openly for the first time.

    Questions

    • The pro-establishment camp has not made any real concession. They do not ask the government to commence a public consultation on the proposal.
    • Hong Kong people are comfortable with the liaison office’s suggestion, as it may violate the principle of one country two systems.

    • Calls for resumption of HOS resumed

    News Content

    • After Beijing’s director of Hong Kong Affairs, Wang Guangya voiced concern over the housing issue in Hong Kong, Chief Executive Donald Tsang took immediate response by saying Hong Kong home prices were quite frightening. He hinted more cooling measures may be introduced to slow market.

    Questions

    • The SAR government rides on the housing issue to gain its political benefit.
    • The SAR government seems address the crying needs of the sandwich class – who is excluded from the public hosing but is not able to afford a flat in the private market. It turns blind eyes to the sufferings of the underclass.
    • The whole city seems falling into the myth of home ownership. There indeed is a diverse way of addressing the housing needs. The government fails to provide other alternatives, which is very disappointing.
