The housing chief has vowed to crack down on shoddy construction. Officials would soon liaise with the industry to raise professional standards, Secretary for Housing Dominic Wong Shing-wah said. Responding to a series of sub-standard housing projects, Mr Wong said the Government shared lawmakers' concern over the quality of public and subsidised flats. 'The Housing Authority will not tolerate shoddy works. We will investigate, pin down the responsibility and seek to tighten monitoring,' he said. Concerns arose after Housing Authority's projects in Tung Chung, Yau Tong and Tin Shui Wai were found to have foundation problems over the past six months. The industry, Mr Wong said, had a duty to defend its reputation and professionalism by maintaining good standards. Mr Wong said an advisory committee on construction would map out proposals in the next few months on raising standards.
