Following are some quotes from He Qinghua, a political advisor and the vice chairman of the China Democratic League Hunan provincial branch, at the annual session of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee on Sunday:

-- The seeking of luxury life style and pursuit for extravagance are pervasive in the modern Chinese society.

-- Luxury and extravagance are at the cost of resources such as electricity, petroleum and precious mining.

-- Quite a number of people are spending lavishly, which is beyond the capacity of social resources and unsustainable.

-- Governments of all levels should lead in taking measures to resist the acts of luxury and extravagance.

-- The central government should regulate the use of public funds for banquets, government vehicles and overseas business travels through budget control.

-- China should raise taxes on luxury commodities and services, and lower taxes in the field of real economy.
