Tung Chee-hwa's third Policy Address failed to get a pass mark from the public, according to an opinion poll. The average mark given by the 514 respondents was 4.19 out of a possible 10 - 0.45 of a mark lower than last year's speech. About 41 per cent of the respondents to the Hong Kong Policy Viewers' poll attacked the address as lacking substance. About 30.5 per cent said they were disappointed. Policy Viewers chairman Dr Victor Wong Cheong-wing said he was surprised by the findings. Most respondents were dissatisfied with the scant regard to immediate problems, such as unemployment and economic recovery. About 46 per cent said the address did not offer any solution to urgent social problems - 58.6 per cent said Mr Tung did not provide any policy to cut unemployment. About 48 per cent criticised the Policy Address for not looking after the needs of the grassroots. Although the address was entitled 'Quality People, Quality Home', 30 per cent believed government proposals would not nurture talent. But 46.1 per cent said the environment would benefit from anti-pollution measures.
