To Hon. Dr Kwok Ka Ki,

Hon. Chairman, Bills Committee, Legislative Council

Re: Proposed Government Bill to improve tobacco pack warnings

I am very concerned about the presence and influence of tobacco interests on the Bills Committee (and earlier the Panel on Health Services), e.g.

1. Peter Shiu Kar-fai even declared this month in Legco that he was ‘the tobacco industry representative in Legco.’

2. Wong Ting Kwong is an honorary advisor to a tobacco front group, Tobacco Control Concern Group alliance.

3. Paul Tse has stated ‘I am indeed an honorary adviser to a local tobacco related organisation.’ (HKUAIT, supported by Philip Morris)
