A review panel on senior civil service post-retirement jobs will submit recommendations in June after tapping overseas experience for public consultation early next year. The government-appointed panel yesterday mapped out the work plan during the first meeting. Committee chairman Ronald Arculli said in a statement it aimed to issue a public consultation paper around January next year. A consultation of about two months would follow. Public forums and meetings would be held, but the format and frequency had yet to be decided, members said. Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen appointed an 11-member committee to review the re-employment policy of former civil servants last week, after the public outcry over former housing chief Leung Chin-man taking a job at a New World Development subsidiary. Committee member Audrey Eu Yuet-mee, of the Civic Party, said yesterday's meeting discussed the work schedule and gave members an opportunity to learn about the current re-employment policy. Paul Chan Mo-po, lawmaker for the accountancy sector, said the committee would employ a consultant agency to review existing policies in Europe, the US and Australia. Members agreed details of meetings would remain confidential. The next meeting is scheduled for October 20.
