同性戀電話意見調查明日展開


民政事務局已經委託弘達顧問有限公司,由明日(十月二十二日)開始至十月三十一日進行有關市民對同性戀者看法的電話意見調查。

民政事務局發言人說:「為確保問卷公平和公正,我們於二零零五年初委任了一個獨立諮詢小組,就問卷設計提供意見。小組成員為陳耀莊先生、張妙清教授和梁美芬博士。」

「民政事務局曾就問卷的結構和設計,與少數性傾向人士、宗教及關注家庭關係組織舉行多輪討論;諮詢小組在制定問卷時已充分考慮到這些關注組織的意見。」

會有約二千名年齡介乎十八至六十四歲的住戶成員,被隨機抽選作電話意見調查;有關的住戶是從住宅電話簿中隨機抽出的。

「我們呼籲被抽選的人士充分合作,給予寶貴的意見。」

發言人說:「透過這項調查,我們將收集到市民對同性戀的認知、對同性戀者的接受程度、對同性戀的看法,以及同性戀者所面對的歧視問題和解決有關問題的方法等寶貴資料。」

Telephone opinion survey on homosexuals will start tomorrow
***********************************************************
The Home Affairs Bureau has commissioned MVA Hong Kong Limited to conduct a
telephone opinion survey from tomorrow (October 22) to October 31 to assess
public attitudes towards homosexuals.
A spokesman for the bureau said: "To ensure the questionnaire is fair and
impartial, an independent Advisory Group, comprising Mr Christopher Chan
Yiu-chong, Professor Fanny Cheung Mui-ching and Dr Priscilla Leung Mei-fun,
was appointed in early 2005 to advise on the questionnaire design.
"The bureau also held several rounds of discussions with the sexual
minorities, family values and religious groups on the structure and design
of the questionnaire. The views of the concern groups have been taken into
account by the Advisory Group in finalising the questionnaire."
Some 2,000 household members, aged from 18 to 64, will be randomly selected
for telephone interviews. The households were randomly selected from the
residential telephone directories.
"We appeal to the interviewees for their fullest co-operation in answering
our questions.
"The survey will provide valuable information on public awareness of
homosexuality, public acceptance of homosexuals, public attitudes towards
homosexuals, discrimination faced by homosexuals and ways to address the
problem of discrimination faced by homosexuals," the spokesman said.
