THE chairman of the United Democrats, Mr Martin Lee Chu-ming yesterday called on the Government to table the Governor's political proposals to Legco if the third round of the Sino-British talks failed. Speaking after a luncheon at the Foreign Correspondents' Club, Mr Lee said if the proposal was not scrutinised by Legco this session, it would be too late. He said time was needed for candidates to prepare for the elections in 1994 and 1995. ''The Government has repeatedly indicated to us that the end of July should be the date when Legco should finalise the bill. ''Unless there is substantial progress made in the third round of talks, I would call upon the Government to introduce the proposal to Legco before or in July. I don't see why we should be waiting,'' Mr Lee said. He said the schedule would be very tight even if the bill was tabled to Legco after the third round of talks, which begin this Friday. Mr Lee said he would meet the Governor, Mr Chris Patten, before the third round of talks to tell him the United Democrats' views on the schedule for tabling the bill. Mr Lee also reminded the British Government not to forgo a good democratic system for an undemocratic through train. He said it was unnecessary to have a through train if it was not a democratic one. ''I think it is wrong for people to think that I want the through train,'' said Mr Lee, who has burnt the Basic Law and been branded as a subversive by the Chinese Government. ''Why do I need a through train [if it does not lead to a democratic system]? I don't need it,'' Mr Lee said. He referred to a recent comment from a former mainland Basic Law drafter that any legislator who supported Mr Patten's proposals would not be allowed to board the through train. He said this was a threat to legislators elected in 1995 and a call for them to consult China every time they voted in Legco. ''So on Tuesdays, you will expect a lot of calls made to the New China News Agency, asking: 'Mr Zhou Nan, how shall I vote tomorrow?' ''I don't think I am the cause of the problem, despite reports which seem to say the through train is specially designed for me,'' Mr Lee said. Mr Lee said that even if the two governments failed to reach an agreement, he did not believe that in 1997, the Chinese would demolish everything that the British had instituted in Hongkong. ''Because by that time the British would have gone and there is no reason for the Chinese Government to show its anger over the Hongkong people. ''And the whole world is watching. And I don't believe the Chinese Government would necessarily dissolve the Legislative Council on July 1, 1997,'' Mr Lee said. Even if the Chinese Government dissolved Legco, he could still run for elections and be elected if Hongkong people continued to support him, he said.
