關注新界地區劃5G 禁飛區

對於通訊局早前決定將來在大埔區(涵蓋的範圍包括整個大埔區、沙田、馬鞍山、粉嶺、西貢,以及香港科學園和香港中文大學的科研活動重心)及赤柱設立限制區,禁止區内使用特定頻譜,安排將導致區內市民將來無法使用5G流動服務。我隨即提出質詢,要求政府交代設立限制區的理據。(閱讀全文

 


回應5G 頻譜公眾諮詢之意見書

通訊事務管理局早前就關於指配3.4 – 3.6吉赫頻帶頻譜用作提供公共流動服務和相關頻譜使用費的安排諮詢公眾,我提交意見書,對香港5G發展緩慢、限制區設立影響嚴重等問題表達關注。(閱讀全文

 


跟進市民索取政府資料受拒

不時有市民向我投訴,政府部門在沒有說明理由下拒絕市民根據《公開資料守則》申請索取政府資料,批評公共行政的透明度低。我要求政府披露市民申請遭拒的數字,發現有部門拒絕申請的數字高達3成。(閱讀全文

 


跟進研究歷史檔案成本問題

過往市民可以使用自携數碼攝影器材拍攝歷史檔案館藏品的數碼副本打印本,政府近日收緊該做法,令取得藏品副本作研究之用的成本及難度提升。我提出質詢要求政府交代理據。(閱讀全文

 


要求研究民宿及短期住宿的規管事宜

政府計劃修訂《旅館業條例》,加強打擊短宿的生存空間。然而,民宿和利用閒置資源提供的短期出租住宿設施在世界各地的發展方興未艾。我質問政府會否參考其他地區的相關經驗及政策,研究引入短宿發牌制度,政府表示創新辦正就不同城市採用的監管制度進行研究。(閱讀全文

 


要求研究彈性工作人士的保障

近年「零工經濟」越來越流行。有不少人轉型為自由工作者,並透過互聯網平台或應用程式接洽工作。不少地區已經著手研究和推行保障自由工作者的制度,我詢問政府會否亦有相關的工作計劃,然而政府答覆令人失望。(閱讀全文

初創企業開戶難 銀行須加強協助

有初創企業團體曾詢問本地初創企業家開立銀行賬戶的經驗,當中很多都曾被多過一家銀行拒絕申請,審批過程不夠透明化,無處得知被拒原因。如果創業家和投資者連開戶口都要大費周章,又如何吸引公司來港營商?(閱讀全文

 


零工經濟興起:勞工權益保障須檢討

離開相對安穩的就業環境,成為自由工作者看似自由自在,背後風險較高,亦不時面對平台更改規則。香港的勞工保障制度又會否與數碼經濟與時並進,保障彈性工作者免受壓榨,甚至要求「假自僱」削減保障?(閱讀全文

 


走在公義路上 羅拔甘迺迪離世50週年

如果甘迺迪沒有死,1968年的美國總統可能就不會是尼克遜。那麼,今天的世界,會不會更溫柔?如果如果,我們不會知道歷史的另一個樣貌。知道的是他所追求的公義、平等、和平、富同情心,我們仍然在爭取。(閱讀全文

 


梁君彥盡顯傀儡本色

為何一名四屆自動當選、從無民意授權的所謂立法會主席可以自把自為?議會應該是由民意授權的代表履行監察政府責任的場所,不是一班強權的奴才鬥展示「忠誠」的地方。(閱讀全文

Concerns over 5G restricted zones in New Territories and Stanley

According to the government, two huge restricted zones without 3.5 GHz 5G services at initial launch will exist in Tai Po, Ma On Shan and parts of Fanling, Shatin, Sai Kung as well as Stanley on Hong Kong Island, posing uncertainty as whether residents in the regions can enjoy 5G services in the future. I immediately questioned the government for details and the impact to residents in the regions. (Read in full)
 


Submission on 5G consultation

Communications Authority has earlier issued a consultation paper on the arrangements for assigning the spectrum in the 3.4 to 3.6 GHz band for the provision of 5G services in the future. I have put forward a submission, in which I voiced my concerns on the much-delayed 5G spectrum allocation in Hong Kong, resulting in the ‘5G twilight zone’ in the New Territories and Hong Kong Island.
 


Access to government information must not be denied

I have been receiving cases that applications made to the government offices for access of information were rejected without proper reasons. I demanded the government to provide details of rejected cases and information showed that the rejection rates of some government units were as high as 30 to 40%. (Read in full)

 


Barrier for access to archival records must be lowered

In the past, citizens can use their own devices and take photographs of the archival records stored by the Public Records Office. However, I was informed that the government has tightened the practice and making the cost of obtaining copies of the archival records higher. I demanded the government to explain such policy. (Read in full)
 


Urging for proper regulation on home-stay lodging

The government is currently amending the Hotel and Guesthouse Accommodation Ordinance to combat unlicensed guesthouses. However, it will also strangle the room for survival of short-term shared accommodation, a new business model that is thriving in many other countries. I urged the government to study the practices in other jurisdictions and issue proper regulation to legalise home-stay lodging and facilitate the development of sharing economy. (Read in full)
 


More labour protection for people engaging in the gig economy

More and more people are freelancing and taking up jobs online. They are often referred as “slash workers”. Governments in other countries and cities are looking into ways to protect this new kind of workforce and I question if the Hong Kong government will also deploy similar efforts to protect their welfare. However, the reply from the government is disappointing with little to no action to tackle the emerging needs in the society. (Read in full)

Challenges for startups to open bank accounts must be tackled

Many startups share the same concern on bank account opening as many of their applications were rejected by banks many times. If we fail to facilitate the bank account opening for entrepreneurs and investors, I do not see how we can shape Hong Kong into an innovation hub and attract foreign talents and capital to the city.

 


Letter to HK: a failing 5G policy

Hong Kong was among the first in the world to provide 3G and 4G services. But now we are losing the race in 5G. (Read in full)
 


Long road to justice: 50th anniversary of the death of Robert F. Kennedy

If RFK survived the assassination, perhaps we would see a different result of the 1968 presidential election. Would the world be gentler if he survived? We can only be certain that the justice, equality, fairness, and peace pursued by RFK are still the ideals we are fighting for today.
 


Being a puppet should not be the role of the Legco President

Legco has the role to monitor the government, to let the voices of the people heard. It is not a place where the Legco President can abuse his power and obstruct the Legco’s effort to ensure checks and balances between the legislative and executive branches.
