The Democratic Party has demanded that two Legco members sit on the board of Disneyland after they expressed doubts about the performance of board members and the park's profitability. Party chairman Lee Wing-tat made the comments in an economic services panel meeting yesterday while criticising government representatives for failing to monitor park operations. He was speaking after Don Robinson, group managing director of Hong Kong Disneyland, told legislators that total attendance at the park was more than 1 million since its opening on September 12. He refused to give details for fear of a 'wrong interpretation' by the public. 'The attendance is ramping up well,' Mr Robinson said, without answering a question on whether the park would balance its books in its first year. 'We want our park to grow and build more attractions, but we are not intending to ask government for money for our first phase of expansion, which is now within budget.' Mr Lee questioned if Disney and government officials were doing an adequate job. He said many people had proclaimed Ocean Park 'as the park of Hong Kong people while criticising Disneyland for being arrogant and irresponsible'. 'I wonder what contributions those government board members have made, including Stephen Ip, Eva Cheng and Frederick Ma. Do they not feel ashamed? They are not performing their duties diligently,' Mr Lee said. He was referring to Stephen Ip Shu-kwan, the Secretary for Economic Development and Labour, Tourism Commissioner Eva Cheng Yu-wah, and Secretary for Financial Services and the Treasury Frederick Ma Si-hang. Mr Ip said Mr Lee was being unfair. ' Of course we have been doing our job,' he said, adding that the subject of having elected representatives on the board was being considered. Based on the latest figures released by Mr Robinson, Mr Ip concluded there had been more than 14,000 visitors a day to the park. 'The public is mostly concerned about getting value for money, and I should say that the government is confident of reaching the target of 5.6 million visitors in the first year,' he said. Democratic legislator Fred Li Wah-ming called for more transparency over the park's finances, citing an annual report released by the Walt Disney group last week that indicated a $100 million loss in the Hong Kong park in the 2004/05 fiscal year. But Mr Robinson said the loss did not reflect attendance at the park because the annual report only covered the period up to September 30, less than three weeks after the park opened.
