The first legislature should establish a panel to oversee policy for the new Information Technology and Broadcasting Bureau, a senior official urged yesterday. This should be accompanied by the scrapping of the information policy panel, which was responsible for scrutinising information infrastructure policies and press freedom in the provisional legislature. The suggestions were made by the Secretary for Information Technology and Broadcasting, Kwong Ki-chi, at a lunch meeting with newly elected Information Technology sector legislator Sin Chung-kai. Democratic Party member Mr Sin said press freedom issues would be handled by the home affairs panel Mr Kwong suggested. Mr Kwong said his priorities were handling the millennium bug, setting up an authentication authority and developing the electronic delivery of services.
