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 policy briefing for the Legislative Council Panel on Economic Development today (October 28):
Reporter: When do you expect the MTR service to resume normal? It has been a nuisance and inconvenience to the passengers when the MTR service shuts down early.

Secretary for Transport and Housing: Indeed, you are absolutely correct that we would like to have the MTR service resume normal as soon as practicable. But the fact is the system has been repeatedly damaged or vandalised over the past months. The MTRC (MTR Corporation Limited) team has been working very hard to bring everything back to their expected standard and safety requirement. Therefore, I would (like to) appeal to fellow citizens not to try or even think about damaging the MTR facilities or other transport facilities because the damage would cause inconvenience or even safety concern to other fellow citizens. Thank you.
