Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying and officials stormed out of a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday as lawmaker “Long Hair” Leung Kwok-hung started reading out a letter criticising Leung.

Leung had invited Leung Kwok-hung, and lawmakers Paul Tse Wai-chun, Leung Ka-lau and Poon Siu-ping to his office to discuss his policy address to be published next January.

Leung Kwok-hung said that the meeting originally went well, and Leung Chun-ying had asked about his health, Commercial Radio reported.

However, as he went to read out a letter demanding Leung Chun-ying give a response to the secret payment he received from Australian corporation UGL, and for a timetable of implementation of the universal pension scheme, Leung Chun-ying ordered government officials to leave the room. He said that he was not willing to discuss issues unrelated to the policy address.

After the officials left, Leung Kwok-hung told reporters that Leung Chun-ying was arrogant and that he did not want to engage further with him.
