Lawmaker-cum-lawyer Vong Hin Fai, who heads the legislature’s 3rd Standing Committee, quoted government officials as saying yesterday that the government “was considering” proposing – for its taxi bill currently under review – that the sound recorded in a taxi should be kept by the company holding the taxi’s operation licence.

Vong briefed the media after a closed-door meeting of his committee which is reviewing a government-initiated bill regulating the city’s taxi sector, the outline of which was passed during a plenary session in April.

Yesterday’s meeting was attended by government officials including Secretary for Transport and Public Works Raimundo do Rosario and Transport Bureau (DSAT) Director Kelvin Lam Hin San.
