It was disrespectful to the Legislative Council to imply it did not represent the public's views on the declaration of tenants' incomes and assets, Democratic Party legislator and rebel Housing Authority member Lee Wing-tat said. The chairman of the ad hoc committee, Professor Yeung Yue-man, yesterday hinted that Legco did not reflect popular opinion. 'Legco is only one of the channels from which we collect public views and the mainstream opinions we received from other channels support the proposal,' he said. But Mr Lee said: 'It's disrespectful to Legco to say we don't represent the public view, as we wouldn't get elected if we didn't represent the public view.' Chan Yuen-han, of the pro-China Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong, said she felt sorry about Professor Yeung's implication. 'We are the ones who are elected and have close contacts with the community,' she said. Another legislator, Bruce Liu Sing-lee, was angry that the ad hoc group selectively used the results of its survey to support the proposal. 'The committee says the public agrees that public housing resources should be fairly allocated and rich tenants should move out to vacate units for those on the waiting list,' he said. 'These are the principles everybody agrees, but what is not mentioned is that we oppose the proposed means that requires the declaration of income and assets, as this is harassing.' Mr Lee, chairman of the Legco housing panel, said he would demand members of the authority's ad hoc group explain why they ignored Legco's views.
