Transcript of remarks by SHA
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Home Affairs, Mr Lau Kong-wah, after attending the meeting of the Finance Committee of the Legislative Council today (June 23):

Reporter: What is the next step? When can we expect the project to be really started? And I mean, like, people have been blasting the project as just a hardware upgrade and no substance has been put into promoting sports really, so how will you defend that?
Secretary for Home Affairs: The next step we are going to do is to go into the tendering process and we hope that the construction period will be started in the middle of next year.
     Apart from the hardware of the Kai Tak Sports Park, also (we have) the sports facilities in the districts, varied in 18 districts. We hope that after the constructions of all those sports facilities, we can have lots of room for the youth talent to have the places to have their training there. That is a very important step for the sports development in Hong Kong.
