Secretary for Justice Rimsky Yuen says extra funding for the delayed Express Rail Link and its co-location arrangement are separate issues.
Speaking to reporters before leaving for Macau today, Mr Yuen said the additional funding is necessary for constructing the rail link, while the co-location arrangement concerns the operational side.
He noted that there is no concrete proposal for the co-location arrangement yet, adding that the Government will not give up on any feasible proposal that complies with the Basic Law and the “one country, two systems” principle.
Mr Yuen also said that during his visit to Macau he will discuss arrangements for mutual legal assistance between Hong Kong and Macau with officials there.
