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

10 DC oaths confirmed invalid

The Government today announced that the oaths taken by 10 District Council members on September 24 were invalid.   The oath-taking ceremony covered members of the Yau Tsim Mong, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon City, Wong Tai Sin and Kwun Tong district councils.   The oath administrator, Secretary for Home Affairs Caspar Tsui, determined the oaths taken by 45 of the 55 people were valid, but had questions about the validity of the 10 remaining oaths.   After considering the written replies from these 10 people and all relevant information, their oaths taken were confirmed invalid.   The decision is based on the principles laid down by the interpretation of Article 104 of the Basic Law by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress and the relevant legal provisions.   The Government will hold the third oath-taking ceremony covering members from the North District, Tai Po, Sai Kung and the Sha Tin district councils at North Point Community Hall on October 4.   The oath-taking will be administered by Mr Tsui as the oath administrator authorised by the Chief Executive.
