A GROUP of councillors aims to show one of the perks of the Governor and Chief Secretary is antiquated. Chris Patten and Anson Chan Fang On-sang enjoy works of art on loan from the Urban Council to decorate their homes. But now Hong Kong's top two are facing demands to return the works or pay 'rent' for them. Six Urban Councillors from the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood will raise the matter at the council's museum meeting next month. And they will discuss the issue today with Hong Kong Museum of Arts officials. Mok Ying-fan, chairman of the museum committee, said the artworks were public property. 'Everyone has the right to see these paintings in the museum. These works of art should not be used for personal entertainment.' The chairman said that if necessary, a motion would be moved in the full meeting. But a Government House spokesman said last night that Mr Patten made a point of showing visitors paintings by local artists. The move comes after the council last month rejected Financial Secretary Donald Tsang Yam-kuen's request to borrow works to decorate his official residence, saying new borrowing would set a bad precedent. There are 98 paintings in Government House and 12 in Victoria House, worth a total of more than $10 million. It is understood some of the council's paintings in the Chief Secretary's home are the works of her mother, Fan Zhaoling, a Chinese painter and calligrapher. Works of arts lent to Government House and Victoria House are changed annually or on request, under an agreement signed with the municipal council. The Government House spokesman said the paintings were selected from the museum reserves. 'The arrangements have been working well in putting on display in a prestige location, pictures which would not otherwise be available for public viewing.'
