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 27):

Reporter: Mr Chan, would the Government consider, much like Michael Tien suggested, breaking up the walls and inspecting to see if there are actually so many problems at the Hung Hom Station?

Secretary for Transport and Housing: The suggestion to demolish the concrete for the sake of examining whether or not there are substandard works is a way that is without any scientific justification, I would say. If there are further evidences pointing to the likelihood of such substandard works, then it might warrant another thought.

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