Tsang calms fears over structural deficit prediction
(02-27 19:10)

Financial Secretary John Tsang Chun-wah says it's unlikely there'll be a structural deficit in Hong Kong in seven years, despite his warning in the budget yesterday.
During a joint radio phone-in program, Tsang said any responsible government that foresees a problem would try to prevent it from happening.
Tsang also expressed hope that a plan by radical lawmakers to filibuster his budget won't go ahead.
He said if the budget wasn't approved by the Legislative Council in April, public services would be affected from early June. --RTHK
