House committee chairman Dr Leong Che-hung yesterday insisted the provisional legislature was no rubber stamp. Dr Leong said a review of its votes clearly showed the interim body was not siding 100 per cent with the Government. 'We have voted down more than 10 subsidiary items of legislation relating to a rise in fees, and frozen the proposed increases. 'Is the provisional legislature a rubber stamp? I hope the public will make a fair decision,' he said. Dr Leong added that legislators had tried to serve the public over the past 16 months, although support for the interim body was by no means adequate at the outset when the pre-handover legislature was still sitting. He dismissed suggestions the interim body's image was tarnished when several laws passed by the pre-handover legislature were repealed.
