Democratic Party legislators will be among the 4,000 guests invited to attend the handover ceremony, it was confirmed yesterday. All 60 incumbent councillors would be invited to attend the June 30 ceremony, said director of the Handover Ceremony Co-ordination Office Stephen Lam Shui-lun. But Mr Lam refused to say in which capacity the 60 legislators would be invited. Lee Wing-tat from the Democratic Party said: 'Can the Government tell us precisely whether you will invite Lee Wing-tat as an individual or in a legislator's capacity? 'I am worried that the Government won't invite us in our capacity as councillors if China disagrees,' he said. Dr Yeung Sum asked whether the Government would invite members of the provisional legislature as it had challenged that body's legality. Mr Lam said: 'Other than members of the Legislative Council, anyone who has made a contribution to society, no matter in politics, business or elsewhere, will be invited in their individual capacity.' Mr Lam said the handover would take slightly more than half an hour, including a guard of honour salute, the lowering of the British Union flag and the raising of the Chinese national flag. 'There will be a formal salute of military honour guards,' he said. Senior representatives of the two governments would then give speeches.
