LEGISLATORS said yesterday they would closely scrutinise the Airport Authority Bill, designed to strengthen monitoring of the body, in light of the sudden departure of Provisional Airport Authority (PAA) chief executive Mr Richard Allen. United Democrat Mr Albert Chan Wai-yip said legislators would seek to change the present situation whereby PAA board members were appointed by the Governor. They would like to see Legco members given seats, and board meetings open to the public. The board had to explain to the public why it had to keep the discussion of some items confidential, he said. Mr Frederick Fung Kin-kee, from the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood, said directly-elected legislators should be appointed to the board of the Airport Authority to monitor its work. But Mr Steven Poon Kwok-lim, from the Co-operative Resources Centre, maintained that board members should be drawn from relevant areas of expertise. A government source said it was unnecessary to review the Airport Authority Bill despite calls for stronger monitoring. A final draft of the bill would be completed by the end of next month and enacted within the current Legislative Council session, the source said.
