Retired Civil Servant


Patrick Hase was the former senior civil servant in the British Hong Kong government. He was responsible for the development of the new towns in the New Territories. He knew the reasons why there was an emigration wave for the people in the New Territories in the 60s and 70s. He explained that the establishment of Plover Cove Dam, made the land in the New Territories unsuitable for farming and the previous policy meant that the people from the New Territories could go to the UK in the 60s and 70s.
