HOUSING Authority chairman Dame Rosanna Wong Yick-ming maintains the Government will not reduce the price of Home Ownership Scheme flats despite the sales profit reaching nearly $120 billion. The Executive Councillor said the money was needed to subsidise the public rental flats where the Government was suffering a deficit and to improve the quality of scheme flats. She added that another 22 public housing estates might have to postpone rent increases next month due to the Government's indecision in signing the law passed by the ousted Legislative Council. Eighty-four estates have already had rises postponed. The law extends the interval for public housing rent increases from every two years to three years. Dame Rosanna said the authority was still awaiting the Government's instructions on whether it would enact the new law.
