Housing chief Anthony Cheung Bing-leung said the government had yet to consider offering loans to first-time buyers. This was despite the idea floated at a meeting of an advisory panel on Thursday. Local property developers were active in afternoon trade on Thursday following speculation the loan scheme would be introduced soon.
