A government official has admitted that she never sought her supervisor's views when processing ex-housing chief Leung Chin-man's controversial application to take a job with New World China Land, a legislative inquiry was told yesterday. Former deputy secretary for development Susan Mak Lok Suet-ling was also criticised for failing to supply the Civil Service Bureau with sufficient information, when she was asked to advise the bureau on the application by Mr Leung, a former permanent secretary for housing, planning and lands. The Legislative Council inquiry yesterday did not rule out summoning Mrs Mak again, despite the former official's testimony at yesterday's hearing and on Friday. The inquiry would also consider summoning Raymond Young Lap-moon, Mrs Mak's former supervisor, after studying her supplemental witness statement. Mr Young is now the permanent secretary for development. During the inquiry's three-hour hearing yesterday, Mrs Mak said she had processed about six job applications from retired officials during her first 10 months on the job in the Development Bureau. But Mrs Mak said she had never handled an application from such a former high-ranking official as Mr Leung. Cyd Ho Sau-lan, independent lawmaker of the pan-democratic camp, asked if she had ever thought of discussing the matter with Mr Young, who was on sick leave when the bureau gave its final advice on Mr Leung's job application. 'I did not think of doing so at the time,' replied Mrs Mak, 'even though I was acting in the post [of permanent secretary]. I made my decision as my colleagues had already analysed the matter.' Mrs Mak admitted that she did not report her decision to her supervisor. The pair had never discussed Mr Leung's job application. In her supplemental witness statement submitted yesterday, it was revealed that subsidiary companies of New World Development, parent company of Mr Leung's potential employer, were involved in building plan submissions to the buildings department of the Development Bureau. In August last year, Mr Leung left his new job with New World China Land, a subsidiary of New World Development, after a public outcry over his obtaining a position in the sector in which he had been a senior government official. Secretary for the Civil Service Denise Yue Chung-yee and Mr Justice Pang Kin-kee, chairman of the advisory committee on post-service employment of civil servants, will testify before the inquiry on Wednesday.
