Transcript of remarks by S for S after FCC meeting
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Security, Mr John Lee, at a media session at Central Government Offices, Tamar, after the Fight Crime Committee meeting this afternoon (August 22):
Reporter: Mr Secretary, is Security Bureau going to say yes or no to the other two requests made by the Hong Kong National Party, namely confirming there is no communication between the bureau and Police before the Police made the recommendation and also the surveillance record by the Police? As you know there is only about less than two weeks left before the National Party can make their representation to you. Thank you.   
Secretary for Security: In connection with the case concerning the Hong Kong National Party, because I have given an opportunity for the party to make representation to me before September 4, it will be inappropriate for me to comment or reveal details of the case. But any communication that (the) Security Bureau may have with the people or lawyers concerned will be dealt with in accordance with Societies Ordinance Section 8. 
Reporter: But this is not the details of the case. It is only whether you will grant the request.
Secretary for Security: That is the detail of the case. Thank you.
