A TECHNICAL college's new swimming pool was moved two years after it was built at a cost of $8 million to make way for staff quarters. Legislator Emily Lau Wai-hing said taxpayers' money had been wasted and demanded to know who was responsible. The swimming pool at the Hong Kong Technical College in Chai Wan was demolished and rebuilt to make way for the $200 million staff quarters in 1993. Secretary for Manpower and Education Michael Leung Man-kin said the Government approved funds to build the quarters because it reduced the amount of rental subsidies paid to the Vocational Training Council, of which the college is a part. He claimed more than $100 million per year was saved by building the staff quarters. He said soaring rental costs and increasing demand for staff quarters in 1993 had led to the council's decision to erect the new building.
