Transcript of remarks by S for S

     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Security, Mr Lai Tung-kwok, at a media session after attending the kick-off ceremony of the Wan Chai District Fight Crime Carnival cum Winter Precaution Publicity Campaign today (January 19):

Reporter: Will the Government change the individual visiting scheme in order to tackle the parallel-goods traders?

Secretary for Security: We will not change the present arrangements because these parallel-goods traders are only very small part of the total number of the individual visitors coming from the Mainland. We all understand that individual visitors coming from the Mainland is one of our main sources of tourists and they have contributed significantly to the economy of Hong Kong. Of course, any tourists, wherever they come from, if they breach the Hong Kong laws, we will take enforcement actions.

(Please also refer to the Chinese portion of the transcript.)
