Assembly to debate monthly parking rental

The Legislative Assembly has passed a motion to debate whether the government should cancel the monthly parking rental system for public parking lots. The initiators of the motion, legislators Si Ka Lon and Song Pek Kei, have suggested inviting public works officials to attend the debate due to be scheduled by the Assembly. Some legislators have argued for scrapping this payment format as the large discrepancy between the public rental rate paid via the monthly fees and private parking payments has led to the abuse of public resources.
