I REFER to Mr Lau Kok-keung's letter, which appeared in the South China Morning Post on December 17, concerning the allocation of car-parking spaces for disabled drivers in Sha Kok Estate.

Over the years, it has been the practice of our estate office to accord first priority to disabled drivers during the annual selection of car-parking spaces.

In the 1995 selection exercise, eight suitable spaces were specially reserved and earmarked for eight disabled applicants.

Mr Lau, being a disabled driver, was the first to select the space out of 610 spaces in the car-park.

However, he refused to take up the reserved spaces as advised by the estate office and insisted on keeping the one he had been using.

For management reasons, however, this space has been slightly adjusted and this could be inconvenient for him.

The estate office will provide every assistance to arrange a suitable car-parking space for Mr Lau.

Should he have any queries, he can approach our estate staff for assistance.
