John Tsang warns of disrupted services
(05-15 14:27)

Financial Secretary John Tsang Chun-wah has warned that some public services will be affected next month if the budget is not passed in time.
He also said the government wouldn't have enough money to pay salaries in June. Tsang said he was not optimistic about progress being made, as filibustering by radical lawmakers continues during the marathon budget debate in Legco.
He was speaking following a one-hour meeting with more than 150 government officers from 80 departments. --RTHK
