If you were to leave the industrial blocks of eastern Tsuen Wan and cross Yeung Uk Road, you'd find yourself at the centre of a bustling new town. The once-fading Sha Tsui Road and Tsuen Wan Market Street have been given a new lease on life thanks to an influx of mainland tourists and the town's proximity to Chek Lap Kok airport.

It is unfortunate that our government equates progress with the spending of large sums of money on road-building projects that destroy our environment.

Should the government overhaul data controls?

My reply can only be a big 'yes'. With all the encryption technology available, or such things as levels of authority, the current 'discoveries' should not have happened in the first place ('7 more cases of hospital data going missing', May 6).
