Anthony Cheung's pledge to quit
(05-19 17:57)

The Transport Secretary, Anthony Cheung Bing-leung, says he will resign immediately if an inquiry finds him responsible for the two-year delay in constructing the Hong Kong-Guangzhou high-speed rail link.
The official also insisted that he had not colluded with the MTR Corporation to cover-up the delay, saying he had never put political considerations ahead of his professional judgement.
Cheung was speaking during a discussion by Legco's railways subcommittee of the hold-up in the HK$67 billion project. Last week, the government appointed a retired judge, Justice Michael Hartmann, to head an investigation into what went wrong. --RTHK
