Legislators will probably have to put up with cramped conditions in the Legco Building for at least another seven years after the Chief Executive said the proposed site for a new chamber was still under review. Lawmakers yesterday said a possible delay in building a new chamber and offices showed the Government's lack of respect for the legislature. Tung Chee-hwa sent a letter to Legco President Rita Fan Hsu Lai-tai two weeks ago, saying the administration was still reviewing the land use of the Tamar site, proposed in 1998 for Legco's new location. Mr Tung said land-use factors were being studied and a decision would not be made before the review was complete. Director for Administration Andrew Wong Ho-yuen had promised a decision on the site - valued at up to $10 billion - would be made this year. Yesterday, Mrs Fan said the Legco Commission would discuss the matter on December 18. Mr Wong would attend the meeting. 'If the Government fails to make a decision this year, the target of having a new chamber by 2008 will cease to exist because it will become an unrealisable target,' she said. Mrs Fan said other options, such as redeveloping City Hall or reclaimed land in North Wan Chai, were unsuitable. But a government spokesman said there was no urgent need to build new government offices.
