     The Labour and Welfare Bureau announced today (December 10) that the Rehabilitation Advisory Committee (RAC) will extend the third stage (Consensus Building Stage) public consultation period for a new Hong Kong Rehabilitation Programme Plan (RPP) by six weeks, from the original end date on December 20, 2019 to January 31, 2020.
