Secretary for Labour and Welfare's response to media enquiries

In response to media enquiries on the appointment of the Lump Sum Grant Independent Review Committee today (January 18), the Secretary for Labour and Welfare, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, said:

"All the independent members appointed to the committee are from different background. They have rich experience in corporate management and community service, including experience in various advisory committees in the social welfare sector. We are confident that they will listen attentively to the views of the welfare sector and other stakeholders, and review the Lump Sum Grant Subvention System in an objective and impartial manner.

To ensure its neutrality, the Lump Sum Grant Independent Review Committee has not included staff and supervisors from subvented organisations."
