The "Budget" will be announced next month. The Legislative Council's "A4 Alliance" and "C15+" Parliamentarian Alliance met today (27th) to submit proposals to Financial Secretary Chen Maobo.
"A4" Yang Yongjie pointed out that many grassroots citizens have expressed their hope that the government will distribute consumption vouchers again. He suggested that the government distribute consumption vouchers of no less than 5,000 yuan, and suggested that the government increase maternity allowances.
"A4" Zhang Xinyu said that he believed that the income from tourism would increase after customs clearance, and suggested that the government allocate funds to strengthen tourism promotion.
"C15+" Jiang Yuhuan, who once expressed reservations about distributing 10,000 yuan consumer coupons to the whole people, believes that the government will introduce practical measures to make Hong Kong people feel "in the same boat" with the government. The government issues 3-year housing vouchers to help those who live in unsuitable housing such as subdivided housing reduce their burden.
Advocate subsidies to encourage childbearing and support caregivers
In addition to suggesting that the government distribute consumer coupons worth no less than 5,000 yuan to citizens, Yang Yongjie is concerned about the low birth rate in Hong Kong, but the relevant support measures and subsidies are still lagging behind those in the Mainland. He suggests that the government use progressive tax-free subsidies to encourage Hong Kong people to have children. It is proposed to add 2,000 yuan to children's medical allowances, etc.
"A4" Lin Suwei also noticed that under the double blow of immigration and the epidemic, the mental health of Hong Kong people has deteriorated. She suggested that the government provide an annual subsidy of 2,000 yuan for the mentally ill to see a doctor in private clinics, and urged the government to increase medical care and transportation subsidies for caregivers. Lowering the threshold for carers to claim living allowances.
"A4" Liang Wenguang and Zhang Xinyu paid more attention to public facilities.
Liang Wenguang hopes that the government can reserve funds for the development of community facilities and transportation facilities near simple public housing, while Zhang Xinyu reiterates the "MTR fare hedging mechanism", thinking that this can reduce the daily burden of citizens.
Jiang Yuhuan is also concerned about the support for the grassroots. She said that the epidemic has caused school children to lag behind in their learning progress. She suggested that the government provide subsidies for kindergartens and primary and secondary schools, and provide resources to strengthen teacher training support and stabilize the educational environment.
