     In addition, Ms Shea Wai-man and Mr Cheung Sing-hung have been appointed on an ad personam basis as an employee member and an employer member of the LAB respectively.

     With the exception of Mr Lee Kwok-keung, Mr Leung Chau-ting and Ms Shea Wai-man, all appointed members are incumbent members. Mr Lee is the Labour Research Department Officer of the Hong Kong and Kowloon Trades Union Council, Mr Leung is the Chief Executive Officer of the Hong Kong Federation of Civil Service Unions, and Ms Shea is the Administrative Assistant of the Cathay Pacific Airways Local Staff Union.

     The Commissioner for Labour and Chairman of the LAB, Mr Carlson Chan, welcomed the above appointments and said he looked forward to close co-operation with all LAB members in the new term to address issues of concern to both employees and employers.

     Mr Chan paid warm tribute to the three outgoing members, namely Ms Wong Siu-han, Mr Daniel Lau Yuk-fai and Ms Chan So-hing, for their significant contributions to the LAB. "During their term of office, the three outgoing members, in the capacity as LAB employee representatives, actively offered constructive and valuable advice on various labour issues to the Government. This helped the Government formulate labour legislation and policies to improve employees' rights and benefits," he said.

     The LAB is a high-level and representative tripartite consultative body comprising representatives of employees and employers to advise the Commissioner for Labour on labour matters.
