讀《衛斯理村管理委員會檔案》(2)

3. 從檔案看社會變化

報告第一部分列出問題租戶。當時有不少租戶已遷出衛斯理村,但他們卻不肯歸還單位,舍監把有關的租戶列出,待委員會決定進一步行動。文中有不少文法及串字錯誤,以下照錄如儀:

2nd November, 1960
Problem Houses:

1. No. 63. damaged by Taiphoon `Mary' on 9/6/60. Although the house was got repaired but the family still not allow to living in the house, because the broken slope not yet repair as well as some big stones on the top of slope not yet remove.

2. No.5. This family moved out on the beginning of August, 1960. but they not willing return the house to our church. Several days ago, the housewife Mrs. Siao say to me: `they do not move out' and she added: `may be at the end of this year, their son-in-law come back to Hongkong, then they will remove back to the village.

3. No. 36. Marine Policeman, moved out to the Policemen Apartment, Cheung Sar Wan Road, Kowloon, on the 21st Sept, 1960. He kept the house not return to the Church, and leave his mother living in the house.

4. No. 65. Policeman, this case same as the item 3. but he sublet the house to a family of no white card, and leave his 10 years old son in the house to join the sublet tenant.

5. No. 57. Policeman, moved out to the Policemen Apartment of Kwong Tung Road, Kowloon, on the 28/9/60, and kept the house also.

6. No. 17. Two (2) families in the house, 1 family was gone to Taiwan since April, 1960, and 1 family was working at Kowloon side, and made them very trouble and expenses to living in the village, so he hope us to help him to move to Kowloon Resettlement Area.

7. No. 23. Two (2) families in the house, 1 family is a single man, and now he was working in the Cotton Factory, N.T. He said he is not coming to living in the village but he want to kept the Authority of Resettlement. And the other family is a writer, and recently he move out but he also do not return the house to our church. as I know, the house was vacant about 2 weeks ago.

8. No. 14. His income was very poor, and he willing to reducing the living expenses he hope us to help him to move to the Kowloon Resettlement Area Church' house.


對此,我們有三方面的觀察:

第一、1947年起國共內戰爆發,大量國內工業資本為了逃避中共政權而紛紛撤至香港。除了1951-52年韓戰期間,1947年後香港的的製造業一直蓬勃發展。不少的工廠設於九龍及新界地區如觀塘、荃灣等當時的偏遠地區。遷出戶17及23正是因到九龍或新界打工才遷離衛斯理村。

第二、從戶36,65,57的情況看來,政府似乎在增加興建警隊宿舍。相信在衛斯理村居住的警員的職級應該不會太高,因此政府似乎是有意增加低級警員的福利。原因大概有兩個,一是警隊的士氣在50年代末受到挑戰,因此以增加房屋福利來提高士氣;二是警隊希望增加本地招聘人手,但是警察在當時的市民心目中的形像不太好,因此以增加房屋福利來吸引人投考警察。

第三、1949年國民政府退守台灣,到50年代中在台灣立穩陣腳。開始接收在其他地區的國民黨員移居台灣。戶17可能反映這一段歷史。

(待續)
