I refer to the letter from Tony Ip regarding the ventilation systems of Tai Kiu Market and government offices, in Sau Fu Street, Yuen Long (South China Morning Post, May 11).
Our investigation on May 15, revealed that the noise from these premises did not comply with the limit in the Technical Memorandum of the Noise Control Ordinance.
As a result, we have required the management concerned to take remedial measures to abate the excessive noise emission. We are grateful to Mr Ip for bringing this matter to our attention.
