Transcript of remarks by STH
     Following is the transcript of remarks at a media session by the Secretary for Transport and Housing, Mr Frank Chan Fan, after attending a radio programme this morning (October 16):

Reporter: Mr Chan, you just said you are following up on the incident. How exactly will you be following up on the incident?

Secretary for Transport and Housing: Basically, we have to know what actually happened in the very first place. We have to appreciate whether or not they (the MTR Corporation) have been acting promptly to help resolve the traffic service. As a matter of fact, our colleagues in the Transport Department have already contacted other public transport service providers to enhance their frequency of services so as to minimise disturbance to the general public.

Reporter: This time it has affected all major three MTR lines. How do you describe this?

Secretary for Transport and Housing: I would leave it a little bit later. When I have more information, then I could come up with a more comprehensive judgement.
