just come across a govt response to Concept Plan objection, on Internet objection was by Ruy Barretto, a lawyer who’s closely linked to Kadoorie (also a botanist) Assuming you haven’t seen the response: it’s more detailed than the (to me) simple-minded rejection of the 19 green groups’ statement; so you may find it worth a read; links here are to pdf files: http://www.legco.gov.hk/yr04-05/english/panels/plw/papers/plwcb1-1262-1e.pdf While Ruy’s response to the plan – also worth a look I think, is at: http://www.legco.gov.hk/yr04-05/english/panels/plw/papers/plwcb1-1040-1e.pdf
