     The Commissioner of Customs and Excise, Mr Hermes Tang, today (July 8) issued the following statement in response to media reports:

     I confirm that I have attended a dinner hosted at a catering premises earlier and was issued a fixed penalty notice for failing to meet the maximum persons allowed rule as required in the Prevention and Control of Disease Ordinance. This fine has been paid. I will exercise particular caution when attending events in the future and will be sure to meet with the requirement.
