Secretary for Security Ambrose Lee Siu-kwong said last night he had agreed to stay with the administration until 2007 and expected others to follow suit. Attending a banquet organised by local fishermen's groups, the security chief said chief executive-designate Donald Tsang Yam-kuen had invited him to serve out his term. Mr Lee said he had accepted the offer. 'If the new chief executive invites us, I think our colleagues will continue to serve Hong Kong people,' he said. The minister said he hoped there would be economic prosperity and social harmony under the new chief executive. He reiterated that, as stated by Mr Tsang, legislating for Basic Law Article 23 would not be a government priority in the next two years. Secretary for Health, Welfare and Food York Chow Yat-ngok, who was officiating at the Hong Kong Journalists' Association ball, said he would be willing to stay with the government and serve under Mr Tsang's leadership.
