query about squatter occupancy survey

Submitted by A Smart on Sun, 06/14/2020 - 01:32

Hello all

 I am following up on my past research on Hong Kong squatter areas, and a key issue for me that I am hoping to find more information about is the Squatter Occupancy Survey conducted in 1984.  Previously, only squatter structures were registered, but in 1984 all occupants of squatter structures at that time were registered, with the intention that only they would be eligible for resettlement in permanent public housing through clearance.
