Saturday's front page report 'ESF to impose HK$25,000 building levy' stated that ESF's chief executive Heather Du Quesnay said the levy would generate HK$300 million a year towards a building programme to replace ageing schools. In fact, she said it would generate HK$300 million, without specifying a time period. The ESF has explained that it will take seven years under the plan to produce a buildings fund of HK$300 million, which will be maintained at the same level thereafter and used to offset borrowing.
