民主思路 電話智能卡實名登記制度建議書

March 2021

民主思路認同香港是有需要設立電話智能卡實名登記制度,此制度的設立原意在於香港已達到流動電話服務高度普及的程度,資訊科技發達的同時,犯罪份子亦利用香港的通訊自由犯案,單是電話騙案,巿民每年已有過千萬港元的損失。民主思路相信設立任何一個新制度,是需要平衡巿民的基本權利和防止罪案發生的風險。

民主思路 就立法會房屋事務委員會過渡性房屋及劏房事宜小組委員會意見書

February 2021


根據運房局2021年2月5日的最新數據,現時已落成的過渡性房屋單位數目為1,174個,受惠家庭和人數分別為1,404個和3,998人,相對於香港現時25.34萬宗公屋申請,可說是杯水車薪。民主思路認同過渡性房屋的理念和運作模式,以解決低收入家庭迫切的住屋需要,令這些家庭可以有安身居所之餘,同時亦能接受專業的社工輔導,協助他們就業和謀生,或當義工融入社會。

民主思路 2020-21年度財政預算案建議書

February 2021

新冠肺炎疫情影響至今超過一年,雖然政府努力堵截病毒源頭,務求儘快令經濟活動回復正常,但疫情反覆阻礙復甦。香港與新加坡的旅遊氣泡被煞停、禁聚令等社交距離措施對服務行業打擊尤其嚴重,最新失業率更升至16年來新高,達6.6%。政府已發放多輪「防疫抗疫基金」,支援疫下經濟,其中的一萬元現金發放計劃,著實解決了不少人的燃眉之急,可是不論貧富的派錢方式實在不是上策,我們傾向有針對性地扶助經濟不穩中最脆弱的市民,援助特別有困難的行業,改善醫療系統在疫下所突顯的不足,並需反思設立全面性社會及企業安全網的急切性。

民主思路 《2018年廢物處置(都市固體廢物收費)(修訂)條例草案》的法案委員會意見書

February 2021

香港作為亞洲國際都會,推動減廢、減碳、應對氣候變化等環保事項,遠遠不及亞洲鄰近城巿。縱使政府已制定《香港資源循環藍圖2013–2022》,立法會卻因不同的政治阻力,一直未能完成審議並通過有關「都市固體廢物收費」的條例草案,令藍圖遲遲未能落實。都市固體廢物棄置問題已經越來越嚴重,根據環境保護署的統計數字,2019年香港都市固體廢物人均棄置量已增加至1.47公斤,即相較2013年增加10.5%,明顯無法達到人均棄置量目標減至0.8公斤或以下。民主思路支持政府提出的《2018年廢物處置(都市固體廢物收費)(修訂)條例草案》,並希望提出以下幾項建議,以進一步優化條例草案的內容,爭取更多市民及商界支持。

民主思路 2020施政報告建議書

October 2020

經歷修例風波與新冠肺炎的雙重打擊,政治制度的既有缺陷突顯,經濟表現步入衰退期,國際博弈令香港危機雪上加霜。香港市民和國際社會關注我城的自由程度和未來前景,特區政府應當竭力鞏固「一國兩制」優勢,善用高度自治權展現核心競爭力,保持國際聲望與地位。

疫情帶來沉重的社會經濟影響,經濟活動停擺令勞資雙方共陷困境。大眾出行受限、教育模式轉變,市民為適應疫下新生活也衍生新的民生需求。特區政府應該有效率地利用累積的庫房盈餘,撐經濟、保就業、顧民生,同舟共濟令社會復甦。

現今世代重視社會公義,深層次矛盾無助重拾希望與建立遠象。投資未來從不局限於基建,特區政府應該在教育、環保、房屋、醫療、社會共融等範圍作有意義的長遠投資,創造多元和豐盛的發展機會,重塑公平與開放的社會制度與競爭環境。

View on Increasing Land for Development and Homes

August 2018

Land shortage in Hong Kong is severe. It is reflected in the rising price and rent of not only of residential premises, but also commercial, office and other spaces. Indeed the expensiveness of non-residential space has risen even faster than residential space. Finding land and supplying them to meet the full range of development needs is an urgent task…
