with or breaches of lease conditions.
125. Meanwhile, the Government will actively consider

the Buildings Department on different fronts to combat the
problem of illegal domestic units in industrial buildings. We aim
to consult the LegCo on the specific proposals in this legislative
126. The Buildings Department will continue to take
enforcement action against illegal subdivided units in industrial
and residential buildings, including issuing removal orders to
owners in respect of unauthorised building works and applying
for closure orders from the court when necessary.
