The Panel on Housing held a ZOOM video conference this morning (14th).

According to the live broadcast, many members could see themselves in the car despite using the virtual background provided by the Legislative Council. Among them,  member of the Hong Kong Federation of Trade Unions, Aaron Kwok Wai-keung was suspected of driving and having a meeting at the same time.
