Govt warns of filibuster impact
(05-13 12:22)

The Acting Chief Executive, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, has warned that the ongoing filibuster used by some lawmakers to delay the passing of the budget will have a detrimental impact on the operation of some government services.
Speaking ahead of the weekly Executive Council meeting, Lam said services provided by the government will be affected if the budget is not passed before a temporary funding provision is used up by the end of this month.
The Financial Secretary, John Tsang Chun-wah, is to hold an emergency meeting on Thursday to work out some contingency plans. --RTHK
