The Government will table Mandatory Provident Fund (MPF) subsidiary legislation on February 25 if it can solve questions about the scheme at today's meeting with provisional legislators, sources say. The legislation sets the regulatory and operational requirements for the scheme, which is expected to be launched next year. The long-awaited scheme could be delayed further if the legislation is not passed by the Provisional Legislative Council before it is terminated in May. MPF Office assistant director Raymond Tam Wai-man said the Provisional Legislative Council MPF sub-committee would hold its final meeting today. Issues to be discussed included whether the Government should run an MPF scheme alongside private service providers. Provisional legislator Wong Siu-yee said: 'If the Government provides a publicly run scheme, the employee can choose between the public and private scheme.' The meeting will also discuss whether to boost Hong Kong dollar assets allowed to be held by the scheme from 30 to 50 per cent of funds under management. Provisional legislator Chan Yuen-han said a majority backed the plan to boost the Hong Kong dollar investment ratio to 50 per cent. 'After the Asian currency crisis, we think it would give better protection to employees if their funds are invested more heavily in local currency denominated assets,' she said.
