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

HKeToll to be gradually launched

The Transport Department today announced that the free-flow tolling service, HKeToll, will be gradually implemented at all government tolled tunnels this year to replace the existing manual and automatic toll booths.   As one of the smart mobility initiatives, the HKeToll service will bring convenience to motorists as they can pay tunnel tolls with ease using a toll tag, either a vehicle tag or a class tag, without having to stop or queue at toll booths for payments.   By making use of the Radio Frequency Identification technology with the support of the Automatic Number Plate Recognition technology, the HKeToll system can detect the use of a tolled tunnel by a vehicle through reading of a toll tag affixed on the vehicle's windscreen or by capturing an image of the vehicle's number plate.   It will then recognise the vehicle registration mark automatically and deduct tunnel tolls from users' preset toll payment accounts.   The department explained that motorists will no longer have to stop or queue for paying tolls or change lanes when crossing tunnels, which can enhance road safety and enable smoother driving.   In addition, HKeToll supports multiple payment methods and there are no monthly fees.   The department said it will provide the first vehicle tag for every licensed vehicle free of charge. It has started to issue the vehicle tags by post to registered vehicle owners who have earlier applied for a tag when submitting their vehicle license-related applications.   Those who have yet to apply for a vehicle tag may submit their applications online or via the HKeToll mobile app.   Apart from the vehicle tag, motorists may also choose to purchase a class tag, which is classified by nine vehicle types and has the stored value function.   The department noted that the HKeToll service will first be launched in the Tsing Sha Control Area in February, followed by the Shing Mun Tunnels and Lion Rock Tunnel in March. Moreover, it will be progressively implemented at other government tolled tunnels within the year.

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
