LEGISLATOR and Law Society Council member Anna Wu Hung-yuk has set next summer as the deadline for the Government to support her proposed private member's bill on anti-discrimination otherwise, she warned, she would go it alone. Speaking at yesterday's launch of an anti-discrimination campaign, Miss Wu said drafts of the proposed bill would be introduced in March. The legislator's bill aims to provide comprehensive anti-discrimination legislation to fight prejudice against women, the mentally handicapped, the elderly and other groups. ''I will use the June deadline to exert pressure. If the Government still does not make a stand, I will introduce my bill,'' Miss Wu said. ''Naturally, I hope the Government will support [the proposed bill]. If it doesn't, it should not oppose.'' She said the Government was only considering introducing legislation to protect the mentally handicapped and had no plans for an all-encompassing anti-discrimination bill. But even if the Government did go ahead with legislation, Miss Wu warned it would be a time-consuming process as it had to go through the Law Reform Committee. She said it could take up to four years, including the consultation period before the bill became law. The legislator will introduce her proposals to the Government before it submits its report to the United Nations Human Rights Committee. She said another aspect of the bill will call for legislation to establish an independent human rights committee. Meanwhile, a signature campaign will take place today across the territory in support of the anti-discrimination bill. Signatures will be collected by more than 25 welfare organisations, charity groups and district boards.
