Question on super incinerator on Shek Kwu Chau 
(IDC, Tourism, Agriculture, Fisheries, Environmental Hygiene and Climate Change Committee Paper 29/2020)
 
Ms Amy YUNG notified this Council that she would raise the following enquiry at the Tourism, Agriculture, Fisheries, Environmental Hygiene and Climate Change Committee (TAFEHCCC) meeting to be held on 25 May 2020: 
 
“ The Finance Committee of the Legislative Council approved $19.2 billion on 9 January 2015 for construction of a super incinerator on Shek Kwu Chau, but so far the government departments concerned have only submitted to the Islands District Council two discussion papers on the establishment of a marine park near Shek Kwu Chau and one on the latest progress and preliminary design of the super incinerator. 
 
As such, I would like to invite the Planning Department (PlanD), the Environmental Protection Department (EPD) and the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) to arrange representatives to attend the meeting and respond to the following: 
 
PlanD and EPD: 
1. What are the expected completion and commissioning dates of the incinerator?
2. Please provide details of the consultation exercises conducted on the construction of super incinerator on Shek Kwu Chau over the past five years.
3. Are there any changes in the cost, design, work procedures and reclamation area?  If yes, what are the reasons?
4. Has PlanD approved an increase in the height of the Shek Kwu Chau super incinerator?  If yes, what are the justifications?
5. Would EPD step up measures to prevent air, noise, water and thermal pollution?
 
6. Upon commissioning of the Shek Kwu Chau super incinerator, would EPD submit discussion papers and report to TAFEHCCC at the meeting the number of visits, waste treatment statistics, air pollution and water quality indexes at Shek Kwu Chau and the incidents occurred?
 
AFCD:
1. What is the latest progress on the establishment of a marine park near Shek Kwu Chau and which areas it will cover?
2. What measures would be taken to protect fishes and endangered species such as Chinese White Dolphins and Finless Porpoises? ”
