Transcript of FS' remarks (with photo/video)

     Following is a transcript of remarks by the Financial Secretary, Mr John C Tsang, at a media session after a meeting with Legislative Council members at the Central Government Offices today (March 2):

Question: What will be the impact on inflation?

Financial Secretary:  I have just mentioned that already. This was not included because we had included a whole basket of measures when I proposed the entire Budget. Many of the measures will be able to help those different people in the different sectors. But since I have delivered the Budget, we have heard many noises, many recommendations that they found some of the measures not acceptable. And in the event, and given what I've heard and given a discussion that I had with members of the legislature, we have decided to make this decision.
