Get creative on heritage issues

People have become increasingly aware of the importance of natural and built heritage to both a sense of history and the quality of life for present and future generations.

HK$760,000 of illegal cigarettes seized

Marine police seized contraband cigarettes worth HK$760,000 on a motorised sampan in Deep Bay in an anti-smuggling operation. Two boats were spotted on radar off Tsim Bei Tsui, but as police closed in, one of the boats headed for Shenzhen.

Committed to Mirs Bay pollution study

I REFER to the article 'Cleanup plan under threat' (South China Morning Post, January 10).

The article refers to a proposed study of Mirs Bay to be carried out jointly by the Guangdong and Hong Kong authorities and quotes me as saying it will not go ahead without the provision of additional resources. This is a serious misrepresentation of what I told your reporter.
