Public housing rents increased
(07-04 14:16)

The Housing Authority has decided to increase rents for public housing by 10 per cent from September.
The Chairman of the Authority's Subsidized Housing Committee, Stanley Wong, said the increase would be affordable as it was lower than the tenants' salary increases.
He said the average monthly rent would be about HK$1,500 after the change.
The last rent increase, two years ago, was also 10 per cent. --RTHK
