Mrs. Wang Ping is a member of the standing committee of the Municipal People's Congress, and also a clinician. She says as a special group, they need not only living assistance but also medical care.

Wang Ping, Member, Standing Committee of Wuhan MPC, said, "The supervision of our work was relegated to paper checks in the past. A face to face inquiry gives us a fresh experience. The answer is satisfactory. I think it's a great improvement on our working manner."

Mr. Zhao Junxin, also a member of the standing committee of Wuhan Municipal People’s Congress said that putting the first inquiry on live TV is a brave move. During the two and half hour program over 20,000 citizens watched the inquiry and joined the discussion on the internet.

Mr. Zhao Junxin, Member, Standing Committee of Wuhan MPC, said, "The inquiry broadens the supervision channels of the Municipal People's Congress. Citizens are acquainted with our working manner through the public inquiry. And the TV show brings the voice of the government to citizens and vice versa, in a more transparent and efficient way."
