CY denies cut of mainland visitors by 20pc
(05-27 14:21)

Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying says Hong Kong will study how to slow -- or even halt -- the surge in visitor arrivals before revamping facilities to cope with the influx.
Speaking ahead of the weekly Executive Council meeting, Leung said no proposals had yet been drawn up, and local views on the issue were still being collected.
He also denied media reports that the government is considering cutting the number of mainland visitors by 20 percent. --RTHK
