Item 1: Adoption of the agenda
2. The agenda was adopted.
Item 2: Confirmation of the minutes of the 7th Finance Committee meeting held on 28
February 2013
3.
The Chairman indicated that the Secretariat had not received any proposed amendments
to the minutes of the 7th meeting before the meeting and the minutes were confirmed.
Item 3: Financial report on DC funds (2012-13)
(C&W FC Paper No.36/2013)
4. The Home Affairs Department (HAD) had allocated $13.9 million to the Central and
Western District Council (C&WDC) in the year 2012/13 for organising Community
Involvement (CI) Projects. Of the allocation, $850,000 was for activities in celebration of
3
the 15th anniversary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and the 63rd
anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. As at 31 March 2013, after
deducting a total of $623,829.42 to be carried forward to the year 2013/14, the C&WDC had
approved $17,222,804.13 for CI Projects, which accounted for 123.91% of the funding of
$13.9 million allocated by the HAD. The actual expenditure amounted to $13,886,955.56,
representing 99.91% of the allocated funding.
Item 4: Financial report on DC funds (2013-14)
(C&W FC Paper No.37/2013)
5.
The HAD had allocated $14.9 million to the C&WDC in the year 2013/14 for organising
CI Projects, an increase of $1 million as compared to the previous year. The additional $1
million would be used to step up promotion of art and cultural activities in the C&W District.
As at 24 April 2013, after deducting a total of $625,331.75 to be carried forward to the year
2014/15, the C&WDC had approved $10,857,222.41 for CI Projects, which accounted for
72.87% of the funding of $14.9 million allocated by the HAD. The actual expenditure
amounted to $674,300, representing 4.53% of the allocated funding.
6. The Chairman reported that since the previous meeting, the Finance Committee (FC) had
endorsed the “DC Funds brought forward from 2012/123” by circulation of a paper. The
balance brought forward from the previous year was $3,222,864.16.
Item 5: Proposal on DC funds allocation (2013-14)
(C&W FC Paper No.38/2013)
7. The Chairman stated that the funds allocated to the C&WDC had increased by $1 million
as compared to the previous year. The additional funds must be used to organise art and
cultural activities. Members had no other comments and the proposal on funds allocation
was endorsed.
Item 6: Proposed amendments to the C&WDC Manuals on the Use of DC Funds
(C&W FC Paper No.39/2013)
8. The Chairman asked Members to give comments and make resolutions on the amended
C&WDC Manuals on the Use of DC Funds. The amendments included adjusting the
expenditure limit of individual items, adjusting the funding ceiling to arts and cultural bodies
and other district organisations to $30,000, as well as adding Annex VIII on “Points to Note in
Organising Community Involvement Activities”. The amended Annex VIII had been passed
4
at the meeting of the Working Group on Central and Western District Council Affairs held
earlier. Members had no other comments and the C&WDC Manuals on the Use of DC
Funds was endorsed. The document would take immediate effect upon endorsement, so the
amendments would be applied to the fund allocations approved at the current meeting.
Item 7: Fund applications of C&WDC as well as the committees and working groups
under C&WDC
(C&W FC Paper Nos.48/2013 to 50/2013)
9. The Committee noted that there were 19 fund applications for CI Projects, involving an
allocation of $690,924, for consideration at the meeting. If all fund allocations were
endorsed, the total amount of funding to be allocated by the FC in the current year would be
amounted to $11,548,146.41, which accounted for 77.50% of the estimated allocation for the
year.
10. The Chairman asked Members to refer to the Paper No. 48/2012 about two fund
applications from the committees and working groups under the DC.
(C&W FC Paper No. 49/2013)
11. In regard to the fund application of the “‘Say YES to Work’ Youth Employment and
Summer Job Recruitment Expo 2013”, Mr CHEUNG Chun-sing, Unit-in-charge of the
Western District Integrated Social Service Centre of Hong Kong Young Women's Christian
Association (HKYWCA) indicated that the event was subsidised by DC funds for three years
and hoped that the C&WDC could continue to support the event for the current year. He
said that the expo would provide summer and full time employment opportunities to
youngsters. Around 3 000 to 4 000 visitors were attracted to the expo each year and some
job seekers were employed on the spot. Since the employment of Associate Degree holders
and youth unemployment had aroused public concern, talks and job vacancies specially
designed for Associate Degree holders would be included in the coming employment and
summer job recruitment expo. Besides providing employment opportunities, another
objective of the expo was to allow youngsters to get used to the job market and be prepared
for participation in society.
Mr CHAN Chit-kwai said that the venue charge would be waived because the C&WDC was
the co-organiser of the event. He asked whether the organiser would acknowledge the
relevant departments for their support. Mr Kaiser CHAN, Liaison Officer I (District
Facilities and Community Involvement) of the Central and Western District Office (C&WDO)
responded that the upcoming expo was scheduled to be held at Sheung Wan Sports Centre and
the organiser would follow the established practice to acknowledge the Leisure and Cultural
5
Services Department (LCSD) for providing the venue.
12. Mr CHAN Choi-hi enquired how the organiser would assess the effectiveness of the
event.
Mr CHEUNG Chun-sing indicated that they used to conduct on-the-spot
questionnaire surveys. Starting from the year before, a dedicated zone for successful
recruitment was established to collect information from employers and youngsters employed
on the spot in order to assess the effectiveness of the expo. Ms CHENG Lai-king asked if
the organiser would find out the percentage of participants from the C&W District in the total
attendance. Mr CHEUNG Chun-sing said that a column dedicated for statistical purposes
would be added to the admission tickets, in which information such as participants’ career
goals and the channels of knowing about the expo would be collected. They would consider
asking participants to provide their residential locations on the ticket so as to find out the
proportion of residents from the C&W District. Mr CHAN Hok-fung enquired about the
contingency arrangements under adverse weather. Mr CHEUNG Chun-sing responded that
the HKYWCA would make reference to previous crowd management experiences and
reschedule the admission time so as to evenly distribute the number of visitors among
different timeslots. The HKYWCA would also discuss with the person-in-charge of the
venue the feasibility of opening the 13th floor to divert visitor flow. Mr CHAN Hok-fung
suggested the organisation try borrowing venues from the nearby Boys' & Girls' Clubs
Association of Hong Kong and St. James' Settlement to let visitors take shelter temporarily in
case of rain.
13. The Chairman enquired about the budgetary details of the safety certification of
temporary structures. Mr Kaiser CHAN stated that there was not a formal quotation for that
item yet and the amount was just estimation which might increase in future if necessary. The
HKYWCA would follow the LCSD’s safety guidelines for the venue. Mr CHAN Choi-hi
asked whether the HKYWCA would adjust the way it handled personal data according to the
recent amendment of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance. Mr CHEUNG Chun-sing
responded that the HKYWCA was exempted under the Ordinance as it was subvented by the
Social Welfare Department and that the HKYWCA had an established procedure for
collecting participants’ personal information. The Chairman highlighted the Manual on the
Use of DC Funds that applicants must implement the CI Projects lawfully, so the HKYWCA
must strictly abide by the relevant laws.
15. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $150,000 to the Western District Integrated
Social Service Centre of Hong Kong Young Women's Christian Association for organising the
“‘Say YES to Work’ Youth Employment and Summer Job Recruitment Expo 2013”.
6
(C&W FC Paper No. 50/2013)
16. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $50,000 to the Food, Environment, Hygiene
and Works Committee under the C&WDC for implementing the “Mosquitoes Prevention
Exercise 2013”.
Item 8: Fund applications of local organisations in the Central and Western District
(C&W FC Paper Nos.51/2013 to 68/2013)
17. The Chairman asked Members to refer to the Paper No. 51/2013 for 17 fund applications
of local organisations in the C&W District. The Chairman reminded Members that the
maximum amount of fund allocated to each event organised by local organisations would be
$30,000 according to the newly amended C&WDC Manuals on the Use of DC Funds, but
large-scale events with 500 participants or above would not be subject to the limit. The
Chairman, Mr CHAN Hok-fung and Ms CHENG Lai-king declared that they were members
of the District Youth Programme Committee. The Chairman, Mr CHAN Choi-hi and Mr
CHAN Chit-kwai declared that they were members of the Central and Western District
Association for Culture and Arts. The Chairman declared that he was the Assistant
Commissioner of the Hong Kong Road Safety Patrol and the Vice-president of Central
District Kai-fong Welfare Association. Mr YIP Wing-shing declared that he was the
Honorary Director of Tung Sin Tan. Mr CHAN Chit-kwai declared that he was the Council
Adviser of Tung Sin Tan. The Vice-chairman, Mr Jackie CHEUNG, Mr CHEUNG
Kwok-kwan and Mr Sidney LEE declared that they were Honorary Legal Advisers of Tung
Sin Tan.
(C&W FC Paper No. 52/2013)
18. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $80,000 to the Central and Western District
Youth Program Committee for organising the “Central & Western District Youth Day”.
(C&W FC Paper No. 53/2013)
19. In regard to the fund application of the “Annual General Meeting and Subject Talk of the
Council of Central & Western District School Heads”, Mr CHAN Chit-kwai asked if a public
promotion would be launched, such as putting up banners, for the event. The Chairman
replied that as the target groups of the event were school heads and teachers, the event would
be promoted in schools but not publicly to all residents.
20. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $6,684 to the Council of Central and Western
District School Heads for organising the “Annual General Meeting and Subject Talk of the
7
Council of Central & Western District School Heads”.
(C&W FC Paper No. 54/2013)
21. In regard to the fund application of “Works about Common Lanes and Roads by Hong
Kong Artists”, Mr KWOK Cheung-sing, Chairman of the Chinese Painting Section of the
Central and Western District Association for Culture and Arts advised that the event would be
held at the City Hall Low Block for seven days from 17 to 23 June 2013. The event would
reflect district characteristics through different types of artworks including photographs, ink
paintings and water-colour paintings as well as Nanyin music performance by Mr TONG
Kin-woon.
22. The Chairman asked whether the event would provide exhibition opportunities to
budding artists in the C&W District. Mr KWOK Cheung-sing replied that the exhibition
welcomed artists who had achieved a certain level of artistic standards and who could reflect
the local street culture to participate. Mr CHAN Hok-fung enquired whether there would be
staff to count the actual number of visitors as the association estimated that the event would
attract nearly 10 000 visitors. Mr KWOK Cheung-sing believed that the target number of
visitors could be reached as the City Hall was situated in a prime location and the association
would try requesting the security personnel at the venue to assist in counting the number of
visitors.
23. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $66,640 to the Central and Western District
Association for Culture and Arts for organising the event of “Works about Common Lanes
and Roads by Hong Kong Artists”.
(C&W FC Paper No. 55/2013)
24. In regard to the fund application of “Introduction to the benefits of Chinese medicine”,
the Chairman enquired about the details of the expense on emcee and performance. Ms SO
Lai-yung, Chairlady of the Hong Kong Hearty Care Association responded that the
association was planning to invite performers to sing in the event. Mr Sidney LEE said that
singing performance was not related to the theme of Chinese medicine and suggested the
association invite local bodies to perform on a voluntary basis in order to save costs on
inviting performers. Besides, Mr YIP Wing-shing stated that as the event was co-organised
by the C&WDC, the venue charge of Sai Ying Pun Community Hall should be waived. Mr
Sidney LEE suggested keeping the provision for venue charge so that the association could
cover the insurance expense when necessary. The Chairman said that since the estimated
expense on door gifts and souvenirs for officiating guests had exceeded the funding ceiling,
the overall expenditure of the event had to be cut accordingly.
8
25. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $15,980 to the Hong Kong Hearty Care
Association for organising the event of “Introduction to the Benefits of Chinese Medicine”.
(C&W FC Paper No. 56/2013)
26. In regard to the fund application of the “Volunteers Summer Training Programme:
Student Ambassadors Summer Training and Action Scheme 2013”, Miss SIU Ka-yi asked if
the target groups of the programme included organisations outside the C&W District. Ms
CHOY Sau-yin, Assistant Social Work Officer of the Patient Resource Centre of Tung Wah
Hospital said that the centre will send letters to all secondary schools and related youth
service units in Hong Kong to invite them to join the programme. Mr YIP Wing-shing
suggested the orgainser consider applying for funds from the District Youth Programme
Committee as the programme was targeted at adolescents. Besides, the Chairman said that
since the estimated expense on souvenirs for guests had exceeded the funding ceiling, the
overall expenditure of the programme had to be cut accordingly.
27. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $11,510 to the Patient Resource Centre of
Tung Wah Hospital for implementing the “Volunteers Summer Training Programme: Student
Ambassadors Summer Training and Action Scheme 2013”.
(C&W FC Paper No. 57/2013)
28. In regard to the fund application of the “‘Walking with You’ Community Caring
Programme”, the Chairman enquired about the details of the item on family photographs.
Ms TSUI Wing-sze, Officer-in-charge of the Chung Hok Social Centre For the Elderly of the
Women’s Welfare Club Western District, Hong Kong said that the centre planned to take
photographs for 30 couples to leave them valuable memories, and to enhance the connection
and communication between the couple. The participants would be invited to shoot at a
studio and would be given photographs developed from negatives and a CD where soft copies
of the photographs would be saved.
29. The Chairman indicated that some organisations had held similar activities in the past,
but the shooting was done in the venue of the organiser instead of studios, so the cost could be
lowered. Mr Sidney LEE said that the centre was usually a more convenient place than
studios to arrange for photo shooting. Moreover, if cost could be minimised, more families
could be benefited from the programme. Besides, the Vice-chairman suggested saving
expenses by only developing the photographs but not making CDs.
30. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $35,710 to the Chung Hok Social Centre For
9
the Elderly of the Women’s Welfare Club Western District, Hong Kong for implementing the
“‘Walking with You’ Community Caring Programme”.
(C&W FC Paper No. 58/2013)
31. In regard to the fund application of the “Fleas Disinsectisation Exercise for Cubicles in
Central & Western District”, Ms HON Wai-fan, Communication/Project Officer of Saint
Barnabas' Society and Home said that flea infestations were severe in the cubicle apartments
in the C&W District. The organisation had an outreaching team to provide cleaning services
for residents in need. As the weather in summer and autumn was favourable to the breeding
of fleas, the outreaching team was planning to provide cleaning services to the residents every
other month from June to October, totalling three cleaning services.
32. Mr YIP Wing-shing enquired about the purpose of the pillows stated in the budget. Mr
LAM Kwok-wing, Minister of Saint Barnabas' Society and Home said that as bed bugs
usually hid underneath beddings such as pillows and mattresses, using pesticides alone could
not completely solve the problem. It was necessary to change pillows for them. The
association would also look for other sponsors of mattresses. The Chairman asked if using
pesticides would expel the bed bugs from their original locations to another. Mr LAM
Kwok-wing said that this might happen, so flea disinsectisation would be carried out for the
whole floor subject to residents’ consent. The beg bugs would die one week after coming
into contact with pesticides. Mr CHAN Hok-fung said that it was impossible for the DC to
subsidise supplies in the long run, so the organiser must come up with ways to raise additional
resources, such as seeking in-kind sponsorship of pillows and mattresses.
33. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $13,330 to Saint Barnabas' Society and Home
for implementing the “Fleas Disinsectisation Exercise for Cubicles in Central & Western
District”.
(C&W FC Paper No. 59/2013)
34. In regard to the fund application of the “Central & Western District Elderly Uniform
Groups - Voluntary Service and Activity Overview 2013”, Ms KOO Kit-kin, Chief Supervisor
of the Hong Kong Road Safety Patrol thanked Mr Thomas NG and Miss SIU Ka-yi for
attending the event the year before. She hoped that Members could continue to support the
event in the current year. The Vice-chairman said that the estimated expense on souvenirs
for officiating guests had to be reduced since it had exceeded the funding ceiling. She also
asked if the recipients of the refreshment for volunteers and souvenirs for participants were
the same. Ms KOO Kit-kin said that volunteers and participants were not the same, so the
expenses would not be used on the same group of people.
10
35. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $21,480 to the Hong Kong Road Safety
Association for implementing the “Central & Western District Elderly Uniform Groups Voluntary Service and Activity Overview 2013”.
(C&W FC Paper No. 60/2013)
36. In regard to the fund application of the “‘Keep Fit Forever’ Health Day (Body check,
free medical consultation and subsidised medication)”, the Vice-chairman enquired about the
details of the expense on osteoporosis tests. Mr OR Shing-choy, Vice-chairman of the
Supervisory Committee of the Central District Kai-fong Welfare Association said that the
expense included the delivery fee for equipment and allowances for the professional operators
as each equipment was operated by one to two operators. Mr CHAN Hok-fung asked if
some helpers would enjoy both the allowances for volunteers and refreshment. Ms CHAN
Kar-nei, Chief Executive Officer of the Central District Kai-fong Welfare Association replied
that the problem of double subsidy would not exist as the volunteers would be responsible for
crowd control, while the health care practitioners would provide body check services and they
would enjoy the refreshments.
37. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $16,330 to the Central District Kai-fong
Welfare Association for implementing the “‘Keep Fit Forever’ Health Day (Body check, free
medical consultation and subsidised medication)”.
(C&W FC Paper Nos. 61/2013 and 62/2013)
38. In regard to the fund application of the “Outing Programme for Showing Honour to the
Parents”, Mr CHAN Hok-fung enquired how the programme would bring out the theme of
showing honour to parents. Ms CHU Ying-oi, Cultural and Educational Officer of the
Central & Western District Yin Ngai Society responded that the programme was targeted at
elderly couples and the aim was to enhance their relationships by going on picnics. The
Chairman highlighted that in the budget of “Caring Programme for Honouring the Parents and
Elderly”, the unit cost of gift bags for elderly people had exceeded the funding ceiling, so the
allocation had to be reduced accordingly.
39. The Committee endorsed the following two fund applications of the Central & Western
District Yin Ngai Society:
(i) An allocation of $3,900 for organising the “Outing Programme for Showing Honour
to the Parents”;
(ii) An allocation of $2,900 for organising the “Caring Programme for Honouring the
Parents and Elderly”.
11
(C&W FC Paper Nos. 63/2013 to 65/2013)
40. In regard to the fund application of the “Cantonese Opera Show for the Elderly by Tung
Sin Tan 2013”, Mr CHAN Chit-kwai asked which opera troupe would perform in the event.
Mr KWOK Cheung-sing, Arts Development Advisor of Tung Sin Tan indicated that they had
invited Ms KOI Ming-fai’s Ming Chee Sing Chinese Opera to perform Cantonese opera.
41. The Committee endorsed the following three fund applications of Tung Sin Tan:
(i) An allocation of $49,000 for organising the “Hong Kong Youth Painting and
Calligraphy Competition 2013”;
(ii) An allocation of $5,000 for organising the “Community Caring Programme 2013”;
(iii) An allocation of $45,000 for organising the “Cantonese Opera Show for the Elderly
by Tung Sin Tan 2013”.
(C&W FC Paper No. 66/2013)
42. In regard to the fund application of the “Cantonese Opera Show in Central and Western
District”, Ms CHENG Shuk-man, Chairman of the Cantonese Opera Art Study Association
added that besides organising the performance at High Street Community Hall, the association
also planned to promote the event to teachers and students in the C&W District and was
considering inviting primary and secondary school students who were learning Cantonese
opera to participate in the performance. The Chairman supported the Cantonese Opera Art
Study Association’s practice of applying for DC funds while being responsible for part of the
expenditure. Mr YIP Wing-shing appreciated the association for nourishing youngsters and
suggested the C&WDC invite it to perform in large-scale events in future.
43. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $20,000 to the Cantonese Opera Art Study
Association for organising the “Cantonese Opera Show in Central & Western District”
(C&W FC Paper No. 67/2013)
44. In regard to the fund application of the “Cantonese Opera Show by Choi Fung Cheung
Opera Troupe”, Mr CHAN Chit-kwai asked if the venue charge of Sheung Wan Civic Centre
had been waived. Ms CHENG Yuk-lan, Chairlady of the Choi Fung Cheung Opera Troupe
said that the troupe applied for the Rental Subsidy Scheme of the LCSD every year. The
application for the current year was under processing and it was expected that the application
would be approved.
45. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $30,000 to the Choi Fung Cheung Opera
Troupe for organising the “Cantonese Opera Show by Choi Fung Cheung Opera Troupe”.
12
(C&W FC Paper No. 68/2013)
46. The Committee endorsed an allocation of $30,000 to the Tin Ma Music And Opera
Association Limited for organising the “Cantonese Opera Excerpts Show”.
Item 9: Inspection of DC-funded activities
(C&W FC Paper Nos. 40/2013 to 47/2013)

DC-funded activities” tabled at the meeting and Paper Nos. 41/2013 to 47/2013 for
preliminary assessment reports of evaluated activities (Section A and B).
