Govt comes under fire for altering water sampling method for tests  Listenfacebook
Democratic Party lawmaker Helena Wong said she was disappointed that the government has rejected recommendations by a Commission of Inquiry to test drinking water at all public housing estates.

Ms Wong told Ben Tse that the move will not help ensure water safety.
