Government accused of ambushing Legco Listen
Civic Party lawmaker, Tanya Chan, has accused the administration of ambushing Legco by deciding to introduce a non-binding motion to try to solicit lawmakers support for its co-location plan at the Express Rail Terminus in West Kowloon. The administration has proposed leasing part of the station to Beijing for mainland authorities to be stationed there and enforce national laws. Chan says she was surprised by the government's decision to introduce the motion to get what she called "fake authorisation" from legislators. She told Jim Gould that the administration already knows it has got enough votes from the pro-establishment camp to get what it wants, but refuses to acknowledge that the plan violates the Basic Law.
