Following is the transcript of remarks by the Secretary for Transport and Housing, Mr Frank Chan Fan, at a media session after the Hong Kong Housing Authority's regular open meeting today (July 12):
Reporter: "Lennon Walls" had been set up across districts in the past few days. Do you think such walls are a disturbance to the residents nearby? Or what should the Housing Authority do at some "Lennon Walls" that are set inside the public estates area? And also, how can we avoid clashes between people with polarised views?
Secretary for Transport and Housing: Hong Kong is an open and inclusive society. I would very much hope, no matter what we are going to put up, and however we are going to put up, we need to respect each other and allow each other to voice out their views in a peaceful and rational manner.
