Mr Leung, do you know how much people can make by selling cardboard and newspapers?

There are two features in Wong Tai Sin that catch international attention - Wong Tai Sin Temple and Lion Rock. I hope the government will support a mountain-climbing competition on Lion Rock and make it an international event, like the annual Standard Chartered marathon.

The district minor works programme set up some years before is important for rural areas. However, very often, if land is not resumed, the programme cannot take a step forward. I hope the government can show more support for this.

Chan Cho-leung, Tai Po district councillor

I think that the time for minor works in rural areas has to be shortened. For instance, the street lights have been applied for three years ago, but they are still not built. Besides, the roads have not been repaired for years, but the Home Affairs Department takes a long time to improve them.

Lau Chee-sing, Tai Po district councillor

Is it possible to turn Aberdeen into a seafood-cuisine area? When we talk about eating seafood, people only consider Sai Kung and Lei Yue Mun now.

Lam Kai-fai, Southern district councillor, to Carrie Lam

Can the government - after so many official scandals - straighten its back and tell the villagers to demolish their illegal structures?

An attendee at the Ap Lei Chau forum

Like any other retired people, I'd like to visit different places of the city with my friends but it is almost impossible when the transport fee for Tung Chung residents to leave Tung Chung is so expensive. A round-trip costs me more than $20, which I can use to buy many vegetables. Then why should I waste money?

Lee Yee-chun, 63, a Tung Chung resident since 1997, at the Tung Chung forum
