DEMOCRATIC Party legislator Lau Chin-shek plans to table a private member's bill next month banning discrimination on the grounds of family responsibility, sexuality and age. Under the bill, the District Court may award damages to the plaintiff. It will also 'give effect to a variety of international obligations pertaining to discrimination that are applicable to Hong Kong'. Yesterday, Mr Lau submitted the bill to the Legal Department, and now awaited a certificate declaring it was consistent with existing laws. The areas covered by the bill included work, education and the administration of laws and government programmes. Three other legislators - Elizabeth Wong Chien Chi-lien, Christine Loh Kung-wai and Emily Lau Wai-hing - also continue their fight against discrimination. Ms Loh and Ms Lau are to table the Sex and Disability Discrimination (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill at the Legislative Council when the Chinese translation is completed. They aim to amend the Sex Discrimination Ordinance and the Disability Discrimination Ordinance, put forward by the Government and passed by Legco in the last session. Their bill would be followed by Mrs Wong's private member's bill on racial discrimination. Meanwhile, Mrs Wong expressed disappointment over the Government's failure to fulfil its plan to appoint a chairman for the Equal Opportunities Commission by year's end. 'This is ridiculous. I don't know what difficulties the Government is having,' she said.
