Webb on "Backchat" re policy address
RTHK, 17-Jan-2013
With Starry Lee (Executive Council, LegCo, DAB), Albert Ho (LegCo, DP) and Nick Brooke (Harbourfront Commission, Science and Technology Parks Corp).
Statement by Law Society & Bar Association
Company media release, 20-May-2011
This follows comments by HK's Chief Executive claiming that "some political party politicians are using legal action... to disrupt major infrastructure just before kickoff in the name of environmental protection and conservation". In our view, his comments are disrespectful of the rule of law - if a project is delayed because of a failure by a Government department to comply with the law, then it only has itself to blame, whatever the motives of the person seeking the compliance.

Traffic Truths
The Government's budget proposal on private car First Registration Tax is based on a false premise, and will not achieve its stated objective of congestion reduction. Our research shows that despite higher ownership, private cars occupy less of the roadspace than they did in 2000. We call for a fundamental review of road transport policy and make proposals to achieve a reduction in congestion and road traffic pollution. (13-Apr-2011)
Building a Value Proposition for HK
HK Chief Executive Donald Tsang recently convened an Economic Summit of 33 people, which spawned 4 focus groups, including one on financial services, which in turn produced 3 working groups, one of which, headed by HKEx government-appointed director and Chairman Ronald Arculli, has sought submissions on the markets. This is our submission. (4-Oct-2006)
