Following is the transcript of remarks made by the Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Ko Wing-man, before attending a seminar today (January 8):

Reporter: (On communication with Ta Kwu Ling residents.)

Secretary for Food and Health: The Government maintains a very proactive stance in seeking to communicate and explain to the residents of Ta Kwu Ling and their representatives. I have just appointed the Under Secretary for Food and Health, Professor Sophia Chan, to communicate with the Ta Kwu Ling community. We hope to explain to them that the checkpoint at Ta Kwu Ling would not be used for handling imported poultry from the Mainland. In fact this is one of the major concerns (of the residents). There are other areas we would like to explain to them and to assure them that the site will only be used as a contingency arrangement.

(Please also refer to the Chinese portion of the transcript.)
