(07-15 17:17)

League of Social Democrats lawmaker Leung Kwok-hung was thrown out of the special meeting in LegCo Tuesday afternoon as the Chief Secretary, Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, briefed legislators on the results of a government public consultation on the 2017 Chief Executive and 2016 Legislative Council polls, RTHK reports.
Leung was sent out after he threw a prop bird cage and hammer at Lam.
Shortly afterwards, People Power lawmaker Albert Chan Wai-yip was also thrown out of the meeting when he tore up a copy of the consultation report.
Outside the chamber, Chan described the exercise as a "fake consultation".
