Ms. Law said earlier that whistleblowing is an important way to combat abuse of public housing. From 2020/21 to 2022/23, for example, about 2,300 reports were received each year, of which 180 were verified. In order to strengthen the whistleblowing system, Luo Shupei said that she planned to refer to the Good Citizen Award and provide incentives to the public, such as giving awards or bonuses. She explained today that providing incentives for members of the public to report and combat abuse of public housing means that it should be handled carefully, and there are views that the reporting system may affect the happiness of residents, and the authorities should strike a careful balance.
