Lawmakers oppose incinerator plan

The government has failed to win support from lawmakers for its plan to build an incinerator off Shek Kwu Chau, south of Lantau Island. Most members at a Legco panel meeting voiced their opposition to the proposal. They also raised doubts over whether the incoming government would back it.

The chief executive-elect, C Y Leung, has said there’s no need for an incinerator, if waste reduction is carried out properly.

However, the Environment Secretary, Edward Yau, assured councillors that Mr Leung’s election platform was in line with government plans.
