Tung Chee-hwa should avoid giving people the impression that he attaches little importance to the legislature, a legislator said last night. The comments came after it emerged that Mr Tung would attend a 30-minute question-and-answer session with businessmen next month. Less than a month ago, the Chief Executive rejected a request by legislators that he answer their questions on the three airport inquiry reports. Democratic Party legislator James To Kun-sun said: 'I don't mind the Chief Executive commanding political support from various sectors of the community. 'But when he accords his time to others, he should bear in mind whether he has placed adequate significance on the legislature and its representatives.' Unionist legislator Lee Cheuk-yan questioned Mr Tung's priorities. 'We certainly have no objection to him attending functions organised by business associations,' he said. 'But it seems Mr Tung is eager to avoid coming to the legislature to face questioning. 'He still insists he would only come here three times a year. 'We are very dissatisfied about it.' A spokeswoman for the Chief Executive's Office said the invitation was from the Hong Kong Chinese Importers' and Exporters' Association. She said such functions were different from question time at the legislature.
