Mainland experts conclude HK visit

The Mainland epidemic prevention and control expert delegation today inspected local institutions and facilities related to anti-epidemic work on the last day of their visit to Hong Kong.   Chief Secretary John Lee said with the conclusion of the four-day visit, the second meeting on the anti-epidemic work of the Mainland and Hong Kong will be held in Shenzhen on November 25. Mr Lee will lead a delegation of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to attend.   The delegation first visited a community pharmacy and a private clinic to understand the regulatory control for retailing medicines, the purchase of fever relief medicines by customers, as well as the triage and consultation arrangement in the clinic.   This was followed by a tour to a secondary school to ascertain class arrangements, vaccination and testing requirements in Hong Kong under the epidemic. The delegation also examined the school’s anti-epidemic facilities and social distancing measures.   Later in the day, the delegation dropped in on the Community Vaccination Centre at the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Sports Centre to learn about the Hong Kong SAR Government's COVID-19 vaccination progress.   Chairing a working meeting to conclude the event, Mr Lee emphasised that the visit had created a very positive and constructive effect on the gradual and orderly resumption of quarantine-free travel between the Mainland and Hong Kong.   He added that it has helped to move a very important step towards the goal of resuming cross-boundary travel in an orderly manner.   He expressed gratitude to the State Council’s Hong Kong & Macao Affairs Office and the National Health Commission (NHC) for organising the delegation to Hong Kong.   He also thanked the delegation members for their hard work of visiting different institutions and facilities in the past few days, during which experts and anti-epidemic frontline staff of both sides interacted and exchanged views.   Such exchanges enhance mutual understanding of the management of the epidemic situation and the control measures, he added.   Separately, during the visit, representatives of NHC’s big data office, the Innovation & Technology Bureau and the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer had in-depth exchanges and discussions on the design, operation and information security protection of the Hong Kong Health Code system.   They also discussed the preparation work of the interface between the Hong Kong Health Code and the Yuekang Code.   Having concluded their visit, the delegation departed Hong Kong in the afternoon.

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
