Legco to debate CSSA ruling The Legislative Council will today debate the impact of the Court of Final Appeal's decision that applicants for social security assistance are not required to have resided in Hong Kong for seven years. The ruling means that new arrivals can apply for Comprehensive Social Security Assistance (CSSA) benefits. The top court ruled that the seven-year residency rule breached Article 36 of the Basic Law, which says every citizen has a right to social welfare benefits under the CSSA scheme. Ho Hei-wah, director of the Society for Community Organisation, said the decision could lead to as many as 7,000 extra applications per year for the benefit - adding HK$750 million annually to the CSSA bill. The non-binding motion debate is moved by Liberal Party lawmaker Vincent Fang Kang.
