Letters | Why taking back land from Hong Kong Golf Club for housing is a red herring
- The government has avoided any debate, public consultation or pressure on the Heung Yee Kuk, which controls much of the land in the New Territories
After all the debate and publicity with regard to the government’s decision to take back some of the Hong Kong Golf Club land for public housing, there hasn’t been any debate or consideration given to the large amount of land owned by the People’s Liberation Army that is not being used to its fullest potential.
Taking back land from the Hong Kong Golf Club and targeting private recreational leases under the guise of countering “elitism” is spineless, hypocritical and a red herring. It will not solve the public housing problem.
