With an annual increase in population still running at over 100,000 a year, the task of providing services is one of outstanding difficulty. Nevertheless, I think the hon. Gentleman will agree, very remarkable progress indeed has been made. There are plans for further expansion in housing, education, medical facilities and social welfare.
Despite what the hon. Gentleman has just said, is it not the case that Hong Kong is relatively a very wealthy Colony, and that in no part of the world for which we are responsible are there greater disparities between wealth and poverty? Can he promise that something more will be done than is being done?
