Hong Kong: Legislative Council Question Time

Some of the questions (and answers) from the LegCo meeting of Wednesday, 20 December 2006:

LCQ2 : Comparison of air quality between Hong Kong and other cities
LCQ5: Spotting of wild pigs
LCQ11: Sauna rooms of clubhouses

Seasonal bonus:Traffic arrangements for Christmas on Hong Kong Island (with photos)

Excerpt: Lan Kwai Fong
As a large number of people are expected, those wishing to enter Lan Kwai Fong may have to wait an undetermined time to gain access. Those with restaurant bookings are advised to arrive at their venues early. Once the queuing system is implemented, people wishing to enter the area will be required to join the queue.

Parents are advised not to bring small children into the area. The special pedestrian precinct will be implemented in a section of D'Aguilar Street between Wyndham Street and Wellington Street, Lan Kwai Fong and Wo On Lane between 7 pm on December 23, 25, 26 and 4am on the following day. For December 24, the pedestrian precinct will be implemented between 5 pm and 6 am on the following day.
Those traffic arrangements and restrictions arose out events in Lan Kwai Fong in the first few minutes of the New Year on I January 1993. Finally tally: 21 dead. Fortunately, there has been no similar event since. (Fingers crossed.) Lan Kwai Fong: Wikipedia
