Transcript of remarks by SCS 
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for the Civil Service, Mr Patrick Nip, at a media session after attending a radio programme this morning (January 30):

Reporter: So does it mean that civil servants have to give up their BN(O)s?

Secretary for the Civil Service: About the BN(O) arrangements, the HKSAR Government has already made clear the new policy and arrangements, so we will follow up accordingly. As regards civil servants holding a foreign passport or all that, we just follow what it is set out in the Basic Law and the Hong Kong laws. Basically, the requirement is that they have to be Hong Kong permanent residents. Thank you.
