I refer to the letter from Catherine Ng of the Citizens Party headlined 'India's buses also have noisy broadcasts' (South China Morning Post, October 30).

The only buses that have such broadcasts are what are known as 'tourist coaches'. In other words, they are the long-haul buses that travel between cities and between states, not the buses that run within a city.

Bus company should back survey claim

I do not think the Commissioner for Transport (letter headlined 'Feedback monitor', South China Morning Post, March 29) recognises how serious the problem of broadcasting on buses is.

Speculation was rife last night that Citizens Party legislator Christine Loh Kung-wai might not run in the Legco polls in September.

The advertisement asked children to wear swimsuits when they are on the beach in order to protect themselves.

Surely, that is the wrong message.
