Council Meetings (Oral Question): Immigration Quarantine for Foreign Domestic Helpers (2021.09.29)

MR CHAN KIN-POR (in Cantonese): President, the Secretary stated in the main reply that the Government would only consider the need for further increasing the number of DQFs, having regard to the worldwide and local epidemic situation.However, Mr YIU Si-wing, a Member from the tourism sector, has already pointed out that many hotels were willing to serve as quarantine hotels, but the approval process would take a long time to complete.

SECRETARY FOR LABOUR AND WELFARE (in Cantonese): President, we are basically still discussing with a number of hotels that are interested and qualified.
