'Plenty of time' for reform talks: Tam
(03-20 13:02)

The Secretary for Constitutional Affairs, Raymond Tam Chi-yuen, says lawmakers will have plenty of time to discuss political reform with mainland officials during their planned two-day visit to Shanghai next month.
However, it's still unclear if the pan-democrats will be able to hold a separate meeting with the officials. It's one of three conditions that they have made for agreeing to go on the trip.
They also want assurances that constitutional change will be discussed, and that they'll have enough time to present their proposals. --RTHK
