Howard Young, Legislative Councillor

At a time when many are bemoaning the decreasing use of English, it is important to maintain a quality English newspaper to serve our very international community. The SCMP certainly fits this role.

I have known and read the Post since my school days. Then, there were hardly any features, and few full-page ads.

Duty-bound to inform constituents of views

Anthony Lee (South China Morning Post, August 31) said he is confused by my letter of August 24. Allow me to reiterate my position.

I am not joining the Selection Committee, but I will not challenge the moral intentions of others who want to join. They must do what they think is best in difficult circumstances.

Clarification

I AM upset about your inaccurate reporting in the editorial of July 21, headlined, ''Irresponsible legislators''. The remark which named me as being absent from the bills committee because of a Liberal Party celebration is wrong - I was in the right place at the right time.

I am not and never was a member of the ''Organised and Serious Crimes Bill Committee''.

Escalating Mid-Levels problems

I REFER to the appalling Mid-Levels Escalator. Over the past two days, the entrance to my shop on Hollywood Road has been completely obstructed by yards of wet concrete, so customers have been unable to gain access. How am I supposed to run a business under these conditions? The Government closed the period in which compensation to businesses along the route was available in January 1992.
