PEOPLE evicted from illegal rooftop huts in Tsuen Wan face losing their second illegal 'home' in a nearby community centre. The authorities yesterday warned that police would be called to move them out at any time. About 10 residents whose huts were pulled down by the Government on Monday camped in the Princess Alexandra Community Centre in Tai Ho Road last night for the second night after failing to reach an agreement with the authorities. Officers of the Housing Authority and the Home Affairs Department arrived at the centre yesterday morning to persuade the residents to move. Police were also called. But protesters left the hall only to hold a Christmas party and returned immediately after the function. They vowed to stay there until they were rehoused. Protesters' representative Chiu Chi-sum said they had no place to go and the authority should give them temporary shelter in the centre. 'We want a permanent home. But since the Housing Authority has refused to give us a permanent home, we should be given a temporary one,' he said. The residents complained the living conditions of the two temporary areas offered by the Housing Authority were too poor. But a Home Affairs Department spokesman said the centre would only serve as a shelter during flooding, landslide, or other natural disasters. 'The residents cannot stay there long as this will prevent other organisations from holding activities in the centre,' the spokesman said. The Democratic Party said rooftop dwellers should be resettled in public housing in phases. Legislator Lee Wing-tat said the Government should review its policy on rooftop dwellers, because the supply of public housing would increase after 1997. 'As it is expected the resettlement of people living in squatter huts and temporary housing will be finished in 1996 or 1997, people who will face the worst living environment will be those living in rooftop dwellings and 'caged homes',' he said. Mr Lee, a member of the Housing Authority, said the increase in public housing was expected to be about 50,000 flats a year starting from 1996, compared with the current 30,000 flats a year. Mr Lee said the resettlement programme for rooftop dwellers should not delay those who had been on the waiting list for years. from moving into public housing flats. He said the Government should not announce when it would do the survey because a lot of people would move into rooftop dwellings to get quick resettlement in public housing.
