About 40 lawmakers including those from the pro-establishment parties may abstain or vote against the Government when it tables its non-binding motion on toll adjustment of the city's three harbour crossings at Legco next Wednesday. Officials warn the Government would scrap the plan instead of making alternative proposals should it be vetoed. Is this payback for Carrie Lam?
