Health chief visits Eastern Hospital

Secretary for Health Prof Lo Chung-mau today visited Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital to get an update on the service of public hospitals.        He toured the hospital’s specialist outpatient clinic, medical ward, accident and emergency department and hyperbaric oxygen therapy centre, followed by a meeting with its management and frontline healthcare staff to learn about the service demands and manpower deployment.        Prof Lo said: "Having gone through the anti-epidemic work in the past three years, Hong Kong is on the road to full normalcy. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all healthcare staff for their efforts in performing duties and working tirelessly amidst immense work pressure to safeguard the city's healthcare system.”            Noting that Hong Kong will see a sharp rise in the number of travellers with the full resumption of normal travel with the Mainland, Prof Lo said the Government will closely monitor the development of the CO

More Basic Law training for teachers

Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung today said the Government has stepped up Basic Law training for school principals and teachers from the 2020-21 school year and received a positive response to the relevant programmes.   Responding to lawmakers' questions at the Legislative Council today, Mr Yeung noted that training principals and teachers is a priority task for the Education Bureau and it has been providing training programmes on the Basic Law for them.   Relevant work stepped up from the 2020-21 school year included strengthening the contents on the Constitution, the Basic Law and the National Security Law in the core training programmes for newly-joined and in-service teachers and those aspiring for promotion as well as the training programmes for school principals, in which experienced legal experts and academics are invited as speakers.   Additionally, the bureau organised different programmes in collaboration with some organisations in the 2020-21 school year, including the Respecting the Law, Reinforcing the Rule of Law training programme co-organised with the Endeavour Education Centre to systematically help teachers understand Hong Kong's constitutional status and the rule of law.   Mr Yeung pointed out that the training can help principals and teachers become a role model for students, enlighten students in lessons and daily life, guide them to respect and obey the law and eventually to reinforce the rule of law.   He added that an enthusiastic response was received from principals and teachers who said the programmes can help deepen their understanding of the Constitution and the Basic Law while clarifying any misunderstandings.   More training programmes will be organised in future, Mr Yeung added.   Furthermore, the bureau has all along been working on the organisation of professional study tours to the Mainland for school principals and teachers to help them better understand the nation's latest developments through personal observations and experiences.   Participants can then reflect on the relationship between Hong Kong and the country and that of the country and the world, and widen their horizons, the education chief said.   Apart from arranging newly-appointed school principals to participate in professional exchange tours to the Mainland, Mr Yeung noted that Mainland study tours, generally with a stay for about four days, have been included as part of the core training for newly-joined teachers and those aspiring for promotion from the 2020-21 school year to enhance their understanding of the national and educational development.   The bureau hopes that teachers can inspire their students and help them think about the opportunities brought to Hong Kong by the nation's development and how the city can contribute to it, he said.   The study tours had been postponed to the 2021-22 school year due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

Legal officer changes proposed

The Government has proposed to amend the law to allow legal officers of the Department of Justice to be appointed as a senior counsel.   At a media session after attending a Legislative Council meeting today, Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng explained the rationale behind the Government's proposal.   She said: “Why is it that my colleagues in the Department of Justice - who by their qualifications are solicitors but are actually arguing very well and very efficiently with great eloquence and efficacy in the Court of Final Appeal - are not being recognised when they are actually even better than their counterparts? That has always been something that sometimes troubles me.   “And for that reason, I have always been thinking about how we are going to overcome that problem.   “Now, what really triggers my determination to take this further forward is when one of our Deputy Directors of Public Prosecutions, Vinci Lam, took silk on May 29.   “That really showed that the form
