The Development Bureau will follow up on a report submitted by the contractor for the Shatin to Central Link on its work at Hung Hom MTR Station in accordance with standard procedures.
Secretary for Development Michael Wong told reporters today the bureau has received the report from Leighton Contractors (Asia).
“The report will be examined by experts in the Development Bureau. Going forward, we will follow strictly the procedures prescribed in the management handbook for contractors of public works.
“If we require further information, we will contact the relevant contractor.
“If we believe the information we have is enough so that we can come up with a proposed action, according to the handbook, we will inform the relevant contractor of our proposed regulatory action and give them reasonable opportunity to respond. That is the principle of natural justice.
“So, that is the procedure we will follow. And we will do it fairly and basically will not favour or prejudice any individual contractor.”
