Financial Secretary Donald Tsang Yam-kuen has been told to soften his stance on fuel charges in exchange for support for the Budget. While insisting on scrapping the six per cent rise in fuel duties, political parties have otherwise supported the Budget. 'We will vote for it if Mr Tsang does not anger us with more sharp remarks,' said Ip Kwok-him of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong. Mr Tsang came under fire during a two-day debate last week for threatening to roll back tax relief if the fuel tax rise were defeated. The bill outlining government spending in the Budget will be voted on tomorrow afternoon after Mr Tsang and policy secretaries respond to the criticisms. Another vote on fuel taxes and other revenue proposals is scheduled for next Wednesday. A spokesman said Mr Tsang would explain the government position on fuel tax tomorrow and what would happen if the measures were rejected by members. She said the Government would stick to its proposals. 'We think it is reasonable and will continue to lobby members for support. We have not given up,' she said. 'As a matter of principle, the Government has to consider financial implications if the increase proposals are voted down by members.'
