Pressure is mounting for Tung Chee-hwa to retain the Chinese name of Government House. Yesterday, Liberal Party legislator Howard Young said he would sponsor a motion debate next month to keep the original name. The move follows criticism of a recommendation by a panel headed by Leung Chun-ying to rename the building chi lo. Mr Young, the tourism representative, said: 'As the former Government House is part of our history, it will still be known as Chin Kong Duk Fu [former Government House in Chinese] in the pamphlets that we published and by our tourist guides regardless of any new name.' He said the wording of his proposed motion, due to be moved in the legislature on June 2, aimed at keeping the status quo by calling it Chin Kong Duk Fu. The motion came after a committee headed by Executive Councillor Leung Chun-ying received adverse reaction to its original proposal of chi lo. Chi refers to the bauhinia flower or 'purple air from the east', while lo means a humble cottage or workplace. The committee bowed to public pressure this week by inviting more suggestions. Unionist legislator Leung Yiu-chung said: 'I found it all right to call it Chin Kong Duk Fu as it tells people what it is.' Chairman of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment of Hong Kong Tsang Yok-sing said he was inclined not to support the motion to keep the original name. 'I found there are some grains of truth in what Mr Tung said - former Government House is not a proper name,' he said. Party colleague Chan Kam-lam, who dislikes chi lo, urged the public to be more active in thinking of an appropriate name for the Upper Albert Road mansion.
