Worried about planned radioactive dump

I understand the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) is in the process of preparing draft maps of the proposed Southwest Lantau Marine Park and Soko Islands Marine Park.


In a statement on May 3, an AFCD spokesman said: 'The proposal is also in line with the planning strategy for the Southwest New Territories to conserve the high-quality natural environment on Lantau Island and the Soko Islands.'


Perhaps his colleagues at the Environmental Protection Department could explain how their proposed low-level radioactive waste dump on Siu A Chau, the second largest island of the Soko group, will contribute to the 'high-quality natural environment'.
