Chief Secretary John Lee had the first meeting in the current term of the Legislative Council with House Committee Chairman Starry Lee and Deputy Chairman Ma Fung-kwok this afternoon. They will have regular weekly meetings to maintain liaison and communication.


At the meeting, Mr Lee first congratulated Ms Lee and Mr Ma on their re-election as House Committee Chairman and Deputy Chairman.


The Chief Secretary said the Government attaches great importance to the relationship between the executive and the legislature, and will make every effort to co-operate with LegCo to perform its duties, including scrutiny of bills, funding proposals, questions and motion debates.


Mr Lee also said he will lead the secretaries of departments and directors of bureaus to proactively liaise with LegCo and seek an early opportunity to exchange views with the members through different forums during the policy formulation process.


He noted that under the principle of “patriots administering Hong Kong”, the current-term LegCo members shoulder the important responsibility of governing Hong Kong together with the Government.


The Government will work closely with LegCo members in enhancing the relationship between the executive and the legislature to serve the interest of the Hong Kong people, Mr Lee added.


The Chief Secretary also spoke about the Government's legislative programme, the proposal of reorganising the government structure and LegCo business in the coming two months as well as exchanged views with members on various issues.
