Raymond Wong, the chairman of the Communications Authority Broadcast Codes of Practice Committee, supported the Government's issuance of free TV licenses, but he believed that the delay in licensing and was independent of the central government.


Raymond Wong pointed out that, in July last year, the Communications Authority has recommended the former Chief Executive Donald Tsang and the Executive Council to issue three more free TV licenses, but Donald Tsang did not respond.


In a few months ago, the Office of Communications recommended it again to the incumbent chief executive Leung Chun-ying licensing, but still, it has not been implemented.


He reiterated that the Communications Authority only had the right to recommend. Only the chief executive has the right to issue the licenses.


Because of the delay, many people speculated that the central government was trying to obstruct it.


“How would the central government be so free to care about the insurance of TV licenses in Hong Kong?” said Raymond.


He criticized that the word "political pressure" was too often abused. Whenever they felt unsatisfied to any policy, they always related it to the central government.


Raymond Wong also pointed out that the establishment of a new television would definitely increase fierce competition in the industry, especially for the advertising revenue. So he could understand that both ATV and TVB were against to issue an additional free TV licenses.


Still, he believed that the "vicious competition" was not a good reason to oppose the issuance of the license. He stressed that Hong Kong was a commercial society, which means all the competitions were actually quite vicious.
