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 public hearing of the Legislative Council Public Accounts Committee today (June 11):

Reporter: Mr Chan, do you, yourself, know that one of the subcontractors has been contacting the Government about the scandal? Has the Government not learnt enough in this case? Has someone not done the job to alert the top minister about this incident?

Secretary for Transport and Housing: In respect of the question you just asked, my colleagues in office, at the time when they received the email (from China Technology Corporation Limited), they had promptly sent it to the subject team to follow up. Our colleagues at the Highways Department have also followed up with the China Technology and the MTR (Corporation Limited). So far, we have very openly disclosed to the media all the facts and data. If you like, you may refer to those press statements.

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