The Legislative Council sat down to an atypical banquet yesterday - as legislator Wong Yung-kan laid on fresh sashimi and 'drunken' chicken for three VIP guests. Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa, Chief Secretary Donald Tsang Yam-kuen and Financial Secretary Antony Leung Kam-chung tucked into the feast, together with ministers and legislators, on the top floor of the Legco building. It was organised by Mr Wong to promote the seafood and poultry industries. The meal was partly an attempt by Mr Wong to make amends for his outburst on Wednesday, when the representative of the fisheries and agricultural sector attacked the government's plan to centralise slaughtering and ban the sale of live chickens. He had berated the government for failing to conduct a proper consultation process. Yesterday, Mr Wong was careful not to touch on the sensitive topic, preferring to let his food do the talking, having brought in toro tuna from the South Pacific and live chicken from the New Territories. Mr Wong had a high return in mind for his efforts, serving up a proposal for dessert. The lawmaker said the government should invest $200 million in developing a 'high-value agricultural industry'. 'Two ships owned by Hong Kong people could pull in as much as $3 million a year from toro fish. It tells us that there is a market for high-quality produce here,' he said. He added the chicken, 'Ka Mei', was a brand of the city. 'It was bred by the University of Hong Kong,' he added. Mr Wong said Mr Tung seemed to have enjoyed the feast, adding that 'both the chicken and the fish were very fresh'. But despite pleasantries, Mr Wong said he would continue to lobby against the plan to centralise the slaughtering of chickens. 'The bird flu outbreak alone should not mean the end for poultry traders. In fact, Hong Kong already has strict rules to monitor the cleanliness of live poultry.' A spokesman for the Chief Executive Office said the banquet was a 'casual gathering'.
