On Tuesday's Backchat - just a week before our Mayday special - we talk about the solar panel scheme. The administration has proposed a 'Feed-in Tariff' to encourage the private sector and the community to consider investing in distributed renewal energy - like solar. The power generated from your rooftop could be sold at a rate higher than the normal electricity tariff rate to the power companies to cover the cost of investments in the panels. Who might use this, and is it practical? Will the rules on illegal structures have to be loosened? If the scheme is to be successful, will it have to be simplified? If tariffs rise, is it fair? Call us with your comments on 23388266 or email email@example.com. After 9.20, is Uber insured?

On Friday's Backchat, will we have enough doctors? A report claims there will be a shortage of 4000 people in nine healthcare professions by 2030, with a shortfall of 1000 doctors and 1600 nurses. Is the report right? What about boosting our training opportunities or allowing doctors to stay on after retirement? Could we import professionals? Where would we find Cantonese speakers? After 9.20, best and worst airports in the world - what's your experience? (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email firstname.lastname@example.org or text 6393 5925)
