Civil Aid Service holds parade

The Civil Aid Service (CAS) held the Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Establishment of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and CAS 70th Anniversary Parade today at the Police College.   Chief Secretary Chan Kwok-ki officiated at the ceremony and acted as the reviewing officer for the parade.   To demonstrate national identity and patriotic sentiment for the motherland, the CAS has fully adopted from today, the Chinese-style foot drill that requires exacting standards, and demonstrated the drill's protocols for the first time in the parade.   As an auxiliary force under the Security Bureau, the CAS has been honouring the pledge of "provide emergency relief, serve the community" and has been rendering immediate assistance during emergencies to protect Hong Kong citizens.   During the COVID-19 epidemic, the CAS has remained steadfast on the front line of the anti-epidemic operations by rapidly assisting in setting up a number of community isolation faci

Views on environmental issues sought

The Environmental Protection Department said today that it will hold two online public engagement forums in June to solicit views from citizens on the optimisation of the statutory environmental impact assessment (EIA) process.   The Chief Executive announced in the 2021 Policy Address that the Government will conduct a comprehensive review on the EIA Ordinance process.   In March, the department briefed members of the relevant Legislative Council panel and the Advisory Council on Environment on how the statutory process could be enhanced, in order to optimise it, enhance operational efficiency and focus more on environmental outcomes.   The two online public engagement forums will be held on June 8 and June 13 from 6.30pm to 8.30pm, with the first one conducted in English and the second one in Cantonese.   Those who are interested can register online by June 2.   Members of the public are also welcome to email their views and suggestions to the department by June 30.
