Govt working to secure land for public housing
(05-05 12:17)

The Secretary for Transport and Housing, Anthony Cheung Bing-leung, on Monday conceded that the government was having difficulty finding sufficient land to satisfy Hong Kong's demand for public rental flats.
Cheung made the comment during a Legislative Council's Public Accounts Committee hearing on an auditor's report which said the Housing Authority may fall short of meeting the target of 200,000 new public rental flats by 2022.
Cheung said his bureau was working with other departments and the community to secure the land needed. --RTHK
