More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

Dinner saga should conclude: CE

(To watch the full media session with sign language interpretation, click here.)   The three senior officials who breached the group gathering regulation after attending a dinner at a scheduled premise have discharged their responsibility by paying the relevant fines.   Chief Executive Carrie Lam made the statement before attending the Executive Council meeting this morning.   Mrs Lam said the officers concerned were issued fixed penalty tickets under Hong Kong Laws Cap 599G because they breached gathering rules.   However, they have paid the fines and hence have no more legal responsibility under the public health regulation, she said.   Mrs Lam also dismissed suggestions the officials concerned blatantly breached government regulations, saying there is no definition of what constitutes a lavish dinner.   The Chief Secretary and the Secretary for Security, who are the supervisors of these officials at various levels, held the same view, she noted.
