Transcript of remarks by Chairman of Legislative Council Commission on deliberations made by the Commission
The following is issued on behalf of the Legislative Council Secretariat:

     Following is the remarks by the Chairman of The Legislative Council Commission, Mr Andrew Leung, on deliberations made by the Commission at a media briefing today (July 4):

     Members of the Legislative Council Commission joined me to inspect the damages in the Legislative Council Complex this morning before we held a special meeting to discuss the follow-up actions.

     The fire safety, security and communication systems have been damaged. Most of the meeting facilities cannot function properly.

     The Security Control Room has been damaged seriously. The computer servers and hard-disks have been taken away. The Secretariat has reported to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data due to the loss of personal information.

     The Commission understands that it is difficult to find a suitable alternative meeting venue and we agree that priority should be given to the restoration of the Complex with a view to reconvening the Council meeting in October. 

     The Secretariat has implemented a number of temporary measures and we hope that the Red alert can be lifted as early as next week. However, certain public services in the Complex will be suspended for a longer period (of time).
