Transcript of remarks by SLW on ATV case

     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Labour and Welfare, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, on the applications of ex-gratia payment by ex-employees of Asia Television Limited (ATV) today (April 21):

Reporter: What are the updates on processing of ex-gratia payment to the ex-ATV staff?

Secretary for Labour and Welfare: The Labour Department has in fact on April 7 already issued the cheques for the first batch of ATV ex-employees, to 25 of them. The second batch of cheques will go out tomorrow afternoon to 69 ex-employees. The provisional liquidator has so far provided information of around 360 ATV staff to the Department and we are going through the information, verifying the data. Once the verification has been completed, we will also issue cheques as quickly as possible. We will bear in mind the interest of all the ex-employees of ATV.
