Education sector legislator Ip Kin-yuen said on Monday that that he supports a plan by the incoming Chief Executive to support students from self-financing tertiary education.
He said this will ease the financial burden of the students and would be supported by their families.
The CE-elect, Carrie Lam, as a part of her election platform has promised to provide an extra HK$5 billion for schools. Lam said that she would increase the recurrent education expenditure when she takes charge.
Ip welcomed this initiative, saying the funding can fulfill the needs of teachers and students.
He said that the education sector has been discussing various measures with Lam over the past few months.

The House intelligence committee this week plans to interview John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign chairman whose hacked email account became central to Russian meddling in the US election last year. But will they question him about the murder of Seth Rich? Will they ask him about he and his brother Tony’s possible involvement in a child sex trafficking ring? Will they ask him about their possible connection to the disappearance of Madeleine McCann? Will they ask him about the disturbing audio of someone who sounds like John Podesta abusing a child? David Zublick unseals the horrible truth in this special report!
A story is unfolding in Canada about a critic of Islam, “Wild Bill,” Bill Finlay, who was scheduled to speak at a rally in Calgary over the weekend about the impact of Sharia law on women and children, and also about the freedom of speech. He was detained for hours, arrested, and had his iPad confiscated and sent to Ottawa for a “forensic investigation”; he was warned that he could be slapped with a “tariff” of an unknown sum for “smuggling” his own words into Canada. Wild Bill was subsequently blocked from entering into Canada. If events actually unfolded as he explains in his personal, recorded testimony below, then this is a horrifying and highly alarming story that bears enormous implications for free speech and free society in Canada.
