Transcript of remarks by CS (with photos/video)

     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Chief Secretary for Administration, Mrs Carrie Lam, at a media session after attending the ground breaking ceremony of the "Revitalisation of the Blue House Cluster into Viva Blue House" Project in Wan Chai this afternoon (September 14):

Reporter: Can you confirm that if you have just become the head of the constitutional reform task group?

Chief Secretary for Administration: I am not in a position to confirm this yet but I am explaining to you that as the Chief Secretary for Administration, I would certainly play a very active role in the constitutional development discussions because constitutional development particularly in developing and reaching the goal of universal suffrage for the Chief Executive in 2017 is not just a constitutional or election matter, but it is also very important to the governance of Hong Kong.  And it is also going to be the most important topic of interaction between the executive and legislature and also between the government and the political parties.  So as the Chief Secretary for Administration, I will play a very important and very active role in the whole process.  Thank you very much.

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