I was sorry to read the letter from Anil Harjani (Sunday Morning Post, October 13).

Racism is an evil which should concern us all and the Home Affairs Branch is now studying the issue with a view to publishing its findings early in the new year.

In the course of the study, we have been meeting organisations and individuals from across the community with a view to discovering whether racial discrimination exists in Hong Kong and, if so, its nature and extent.

If Mr Harjani would like to tell us about his experiences, I would be very pleased to hear from him. My telephone number is 2835 1552. This invitation is, of course, open to any member of the public with an interest in the issue.

JOHN DEAN for Secretary for Home Affairs
