FS speaks to media after district visit (with photos and video)

    Following is the transcript of remarks (English portion) of a media stand-up by the Financial Secretary, Mr Henry Tang, after touring the Eastern District this afternoon (March 4):

Reporter: ...why did you choose to visit this district?

Financial Secretary: When I introduced my Budget last Wednesday, I had taken what I called a double-barrelled approach. Regarding our middle class or our taxpayers, we will give them a host of rebate and tax concessions, tax reliefs. As far as those who are needy or those who are less affluent, we will give them measures that will help them directly such as the transport subsidy and the children development fund -- these kinds of direct measures that will help them directly.
