Police Commissioner Eddie Hui Ki-on is to be asked to move out of his government residence in Mid-Levels. The Legislative Council's Public Accounts Committee's draft report ruled that Mr Hui - who bought a flat under the civil service's Home Purchase Scheme before his promotion - had breached the double-benefit rule by using government money to buy a flat but then living in an official residence. Mr Hui had agreed in 1984 that he would forfeit his eligibility for other housing benefits as a condition of the scheme. Only the Chief Secretary, the Attorney-General, the Financial Secretary and the Chief Justice enjoy official residences. If the Government agrees with the report, Mr Hui will have to find a new home since his 1,610-square-foot harbour-view flat in Jardine's Lookout was sold for a $6 million profit before he moved into the new residence. The report rejected the Government's defence that the residence at 50 Magazine Gap Road, a three-storey house overlooking Victoria Harbour, be regarded as a 'post-tied quarter'. 'Post-tied quarters' are for those 'who are required to live at, or very close to, their place of work', the rules state. Mr Hui did not qualify since his normal place of work was at police headquarters in Wan Chai. The report noted that a further 990 officers and 524 officers' spouses of the seven disciplinary services received public housing benefits while living in 1,336 government quarters of which the rental costs amounted to $145 million a year. The Government has promised to change this. The committee said that as a matter of fairness, Mr Hui should not be excluded from the double-benefit rule. The Government and Mr Hui claimed the house was needed to receive overseas officials and local dignitaries. However, the report rejected this argument. In addition, the committee expressed regret at Mr Hui's action in June 1994 when he wrote to the Secretary for Civil Service to seek approval to live in 'AA-grade quarters'. Mr Hui should have understood that this would be a breach of the double-benefit rule. The seven-strong committee will finalise its ruling and recommendations at a meeting today. The report is expected to be released early next month giving the administration three months to reply.
