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 (June 20):

Reporter: Is the Government going to report the two new incidents to the Police like they did for the incident in Hung Hom? Also, do you think the MTRC management should bear some responsibility over the recent scandals instead of disciplining the lower ranking staff?

Secretary for Transport and Housing: In respect of those incidents arising from the Exhibition (Centre) Station and To Kwa Wan Station, if there is any suspected criminal act, then we will certainly report to the law enforcement agency to follow up. This is for sure. In respect of the responsibility of the MTRC (MTR Corporation Limited), I do think that they do have a duty of care to ensure all projects are being carried out in a professional and safe manner. With due respect, I'd expect them to exercise their due diligence to ensure safety and quality of the works under their supervision and management.
