Report has taken too long: lawmaker Listen
The government has published a preliminary report about a large metal object found near the Wan Chai coastline -- which historians say could be the wreck of HMS Tamar. The report says the location of the wreck and the numerous copper alloy objects found nearby do point towards it being the Royal Navy ship. But a definitive identification can't be made at this stage without the ship's bell, nameplate or other unique signifier. The object was uncovered in 2014. Civic Party lawmaker Tanya Chan tells Ben Tse that she is very concerned that it has taken such a long time for the preliminary report to be released.
