Submission of petitions before ExCo meetings to be suspended

     In view of the severe situation of the novel coronavirus infection, the arrangement for the Chief Executive to receive petitions outside the Chief Executive's Office before she convenes the Executive Council's meeting will be suspended on the Tuesdays of March 31 and April 7 to minimise group gatherings. During this period, members of the public can email their petitions to or send them to the Chief Executive's Office of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Tamar, Hong Kong.
     The media session by the Chief Executive before the Executive Council's meeting will continue. As announced earlier, the relevant session will be relocated to the Auditorium of the Central Government Offices, which is more spacious. There will also be special arrangements on the number of media representatives and their seating until further notice.
