Transcript of remarks by STH
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Transport and Housing, Mr Frank Chan Fan, at a media session after attending the Legislative Council meeting today (May 30):

Reporter: Does the Government actually know about it? Are you aware of the situation? Are you informed? Have you actually been monitoring the misbehaviour of the contractor?

Secretary for Transport and Housing: I would suppose, no matter who, whether the Government or a company or a team of experts, there is always a hierarchy of management and supervision. Therefore it is only when something went wrong, then this would be escalated to my level. If things were spotted and rectified on-site at the substantial time, then I would expect that the professionalism and responsible manner would have received endorsement from the community and the media.
