Legislators yesterday voiced support for a group of tycoons who are demanding improved harbour planning, and called on the government to look at setting up an independent authority to oversee the waterway. The Harbour Business Forum, a coalition of 120 leading companies and business groups, will seek a meeting with Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen after the Lunar New Year to raise their concerns over development. Democratic Party chairman Lee Wing-tat welcomed the move and will invite members to speak in the legislature. Alan Leong Kah-kit, of the Article 45 Concern Group, also welcomed the group, saying it was common in other parts of the world to have an authority to co-ordinate planning and development of harbours. A spokesman of the Chief Executive's Office yesterday declined to comment on the move.
