Pass bill without delay

I would like to express total support for everything said by Jack Edwards in his letter about passports for war wives and widows (South China Morning Post, May 18).

He must be devastated that, after coming so far in his campaign, he has been thwarted by what at best appears to be a petty and spiteful act of party politics.

Incipient malaise

The recent problems associated with a failure on the MTR show up some problems with the corporation's public relations.

Blaming passengers for making the delay longer than it might otherwise have been was injudicious.

Chiding them for wearing too many clothes signals a move from the sublime to the ridiculous.

Postal policy

I refer to the letter headlined 'Post Office should pay up' (South China Morning Post, February 21) in which your reader R H Fuller complained about the delay in delivery of a Speedpost item.

The writer complained that the Post Office does not pay any compensation in the event of loss or delay. We are now reviewing this policy and will keep R H Fuller informed of the outcome.

Tragic price for delay

ONCE again, a man has been killed when an illegal structure collapsed and fell on him. Once again, the Government says it is doing its best to put an end to the problem - but is overwhelmed by the task. That is nonsense. The Government could do much more, knows what can and should be done, but has been putting it off for short-sighted, bureaucratic reasons.

Patten law programme failing pledge

MORE than a third of the legislation promised by Governor Chris Patten in his policy address last year has yet to be tabled in the Legislative Council - and there are only seven weeks left before the legislature dissolves.

Long delay

I APPLIED for a senior citizen's card on March 24 and after 66 days, it arrived. I lost it a few days later and on June 16, requested a replacement. After almost four months, I have still not received my replacement card.

I lost my identity card and got a new one within one month.
