THE Government are expected to knock back National Olympic Committee demands for elected representation on the future administrative body for Hong Kong sport. The body will be formed by the controversial merger between the Hong Kong Sports Institute and Sports Development Board - a move described as a ''foregone conclusion'' by the Legislative Council's Bills Committee chairman, Christina Loh Kung-wai. The territory's Amateur Sports Federation and Olympic Committee want at least three members of the future management board of the merged body to be elected from their associations instead of being randomly appointed, as they are now, by the Governor. But a statement to the Bills Committee from the secretary of Recreation and Culture Branch, James So, said: ''The sports associations are not very well organised fraternities. The present system of appointment to the SDB board is considered acceptable andis in line with normal arrangements adopted for statutory boards and committees in Hong Kong. ''I do not feel that there are compelling reasons for making changes. Since the inception of the SDB in April, 1990, the appointment of members on to the board has been made with due regard to the interests of the sporting fraternity. ''Seven out of the 13 members currently on the board are connected with one sporting organisation or another.'' Bills Committee member Jimmy McGregor, however, felt the associations had a case for wanting to be represented on the board and that the administration could look into the possibility of having elected officials in the long-term. ''It is easy to appoint people who may not be representative of sport in Hong Kong,'' said McGregor. RCB deputy secretary Paul Leung replied by saying: ''The ASF & OC has about 60 member associations and I believe that only 29 have voting rights. Sports is not only the ASF & OC.'' So said the administration would endeavour to improve communication with the ASF & OC, who have accused the Government of going ahead with policies directly affecting national sports associations without prior consultation. He urged ASF & OC president A. de O. Sales, who is an ex-officio member of the SDB board, to be the communication link between the two organisations. The Bills Committee yesterday heard submissions from Hong Kong Amateur Swimming Association vice-president Y. S. Wong. Wong was also concerned by the Government's apparent lack of consultation in processing the merger and voiced fears that the autonomy of his and other associations would be threatened by the merged body. ''We have earned our right to maintain our autonomy and to conduct our business in accordance with the aim and rules of our constitution,'' said Wong.
