No lawmakers are currently facing disciplinary measures for their behaviour in the Legislative Council, Tsang Yok-sing, the council president, said yesterday. Members of Legco's committee on rules and procedures yesterday agreed to hold an additional meeting next month - in particular to discuss the radical protest by lawmakers Wong Yuk-man and Leung Kwok-hung, of the League of Social Democrats, during last week's budget speech. The committee will also consider whether the current Legco rules should be amended to better control disorderly conduct. As Financial Secretary John Tsang Chun-wah gave his speech last Wednesday, Mr Wong walked up to him, grabbed his documents and his glass of water, and made a swipe at his microphone, muttering: 'What's the point of reading this out; there's nothing worth reading out.' Speaking after a public function yesterday, the Legco president said: 'Even if the rules have not yet been amended, Legco has its responsibility to protect all government officials who attend meetings in the chamber. 'Up to this moment, I don't see that any lawmakers have to face disqualification for their behaviour.' Ip Kwok-him, deputy chairman of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong, said the party had no plans to invoke the Basic Law to disqualify the league's three lawmakers, nor to move a Legco motion condemning them. Under Article 79 of the Basic Law, a lawmaker can be disqualified, for misbehavior or a breach of oath, by a two-thirds Legco vote. Since Mr Wong's protest last week, the Legco secretariat has received 167 comments from the public on the issue, from people supporting and opposing the protest. The antics by league members have further widened the gap between them and other members of the pan-democratic camp. The Democratic Party and Civic Party issued a joint statement on Friday regretting the league's tactics, and the league responded yesterday by demanding they withdraw it. Mr Leung challenged the joint statement, saying it had described the protest as violent. 'The resistance in the legislature did not involve any violence,' he retorted. 'We interrupted the meeting to speak for those who have no say in the community.' But the league said it would not break off relations with the pro-democratic camp over a single incident. Democratic Party chairman Albert Ho Chun-yan and the Civic Party's Ronny Tong Ka-wah did not think that the incident would affect the camp's future co-operation.
