該份文件應該是指「The New Territories small house policy , by Lam Ding Kwok Joseph ( Chief Land Executive ) of New Territories Administration ,Feb 1980」。
首先，這不是「新界政務司」文件，而是「首席地政主任」（Chief Land Executive )的文件。兩者在職務、職級、權限、責任完全不同，更未論新界政務司在殖民地年代對新界管理有極大權威。這些關於政府科層架構和官職權責問題，理應是尊貴的立法會議員所熟悉，何以現在會自曝其短？
Since the beginning of the lease of the New Territories the custom of the villagers to build house in their village for their own occupation and on their own agricultural land held under the Block Crown Lease issued in 1905, free of premium, has been recognised.
This tradition was officially endorsed by Executive Council in October, 1959. On approved of the Council in June, 1960 the concession of a conversion at nil premium was extended to cover also the pre-war New Grant Lots ( i.e. agricultural land granted after the issue of the Block Crown Lease).
