Six out of 89 Government House staff, all expatriates, are leaving Hong Kong when their contracts expire on Monday. The rest will remain in their jobs or be redeployed elsewhere in government, apart from the Governor's information co-ordinator, Kerry McGlynn, whose future is unknown. Those staying include 30 domestic staff and their families, who live on site and had feared losing their homes as well as their jobs. The five drivers, four telephone operators and 16 gardeners will also remain. They include the longest-serving employee, telephone operator John Chiu Chung-man, who has 39 years of service at Government House. Among those leaving are Chris Patten's two personal advisers, Martin Dinham and Edward Llewellyn, aide-de-camp Lance Brown, social secretary Louise Law, his senior personal assistant Jenny Best and his senior personal secretary Ann Francis. The exodus of Westerners means just two expatriate civil servants, Mr Patten's deputy private secretary Kim Salkeld and assistant director of information Paul Brown, will definitely remain and be redeployed within government. One staffer will be flying to London but will remain a government employee. John Tsang Chun-wah will head the Hong Kong Economic Trade Office there. Chief Executive-designate Tung Chee-hwa will neither live nor work at Government House. But the domestic staff are needed because it may be used as a guest house for visiting dignitaries, as well as a museum or art gallery.
