Hong Kong: Legislative Council Questions

Some of the questions (and answers) from the LegCo meeting of Wednesday, 31 January 2007:

LCQ6: Disability Allowance
LCQ11: Importation of pachinko machines with toxic heavy metals
LCQ17: Marathon race

Re: Disability Allowance. As of 1 February 2007, Disability Allowance increases by 1.2% (from HK$1,125 to HK$1,140 per month). That's fifteen dollars more, per month.

Be grateful for small mercies: for a 30-day month that's an extra fifty cents per day spending money.
