Mock Legco Debate
May 11, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Dear Rotary Presidents, School Principals and School Representatives,
The Mock LegCo will take place at the Legislative Council Complex with details as shown below:
- Mock LegCo Workshop on 13 April 2013 (Saturday) 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm; and
- Mock LegCo on 11 May 2013 (Saturday) 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm
The topic of the 3-hour Mock LegCo on 11 May 2013 will be on the Marriage (Amendment) Bill. Children under age 16 may not marry in Hong Kong. Minors (16-21) need the written consent of their father (or mother if their father is deceased or incompetent) or legal guardian. The Bill proposes to reduce the age of marriage without consent from 21 to 18.
We are very honoured to have The Honourable Mr Jasper Tsang Yok Sing, GBS, JP, President of the LegCo to be our guest of honour at the Mock LegCo on 11 May 2013.
The registrants MUST participate in both the full Workshop and the full Debate as a package. Latecomers will not be entertained and no early leave will be allowed. The priority for participation should go first to all students of our Rotary Adopt A School partnering schools. Should there be vacancy after the registration deadline specified below, we may invite other schools recommended by the Education Bureau.
A total of 58 students can be accommodated so that around 5 students from each school will be accepted. Relevant materials for use at the Workshop and Debate will be provided by LegCo Secretariat staff after registration has been confirmed.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to let me or Past President Rosa Pang (mobile phone number: 96311610) know.
