The suspension of amendments to the Bill of Rights Ordinance was extended for another month, until the end of February. An amendment seeks to scrap clauses passed by the ousted legislature to extend the ordinance to cover disputes between individuals. But independent Andrew Wong Wang-fat was angry that the Government had made no attempt to amend the clauses moved by ousted Democrat Lau Chin-shek but simply wanted to scrap them. 'The Government has no sincerity to solve the problems which Mr Lau determined to solve,' he said. Mr Wong said the administration should let the local courts decide whether the ordinance was applicable rather than freezing it. But Secretary for Home Affairs David Lan Hong-tsung said it was to allow more time for scrutiny.
