Only two out of six tycoons have removed gates to their homes which encroached on public land:

Kelvin Ng - It just goes to show tycoons are above the law. Don't blame HK people for cursing the filthy rich. They asked for it and deserve it.

Patrick Shu Wing-lee - If the chief executive does not take the lead to remove such illegal or unauthorised building structures, the tycoons can find excuses for non-compliance. When the CE points out that integrity is an important core value, he must set a good example himself.

Legislator Frederick Fung says more education is needed to close the salary gap between men and women in the workplace:

Magz N - Is education really the answer? Seems hard to believe that it's because girls do not have equal access to higher education that there is a salary gap. I was under the impression that there are in fact more girls than boys at universities, but I may be wrong. Doesn't the salary gap have more to do with career progression within the workplace/the extent to which employers are willing to accommodate some women's needs, e.g., giving birth?

Public hospitals may recruit overseas nurses to cope with a severe staff shortage:

Bjorn Berg - A lack of qualified medical professionals is a problem in many countries. Unfortunately, it's generally not easy for these people to work in another country even when they are qualified (e.g., European medical professionals generally cannot work in Canada without being requalified there). The language barrier makes it even more difficult to recruit professionals for HK since Cantonese is a difficult language to learn for many.
