Reviews on sports clubs leases finished by end of year
(05-14 13:24)

Chief Secretary Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor says a preliminary review of the system which grants leases to private sports clubs will be completed by the end of the year.
She was commenting on a Legco Public Accounts Committee report that strongly criticised the administration for dragging its feet over reviewing the private recreational lease policy.
There have been claims that land given to clubs for nominal land premiums and low rents could be put to better use.
Lam told legislators that the Home Affairs Bureau had already asked sports clubs to allow greater access to the public. --RTHK
