THE Government's consultation over the extension of the curfew at Kai Tak airport to 12.30 am was dismissed as unfair by the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood yesterday.


Party chairman Frederick Fung Kin-kee said the views of the residents in the affected districts were not being reflected in the consultation.


'The majority of the opinions come from airline operators who would definitely throw their weight behind the proposal because of their business interests,' Mr Fung said.


He charged the Civil Aviation Department with neglecting the interests of the residents.


Mr Fung and party members yesterday staged a sit-in at the airport in protest against the proposal.
