    Regulation of Electronic Cigarettes

    Backchat will return next Tuesday when we will talk about electronic cigarettes. The Government has plans to regulate e-cigarettes, heat not burn products and herbal cigareetes in the same way as traditional cigarettes. Is this the right approach, or do you agree with the Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health that  vapour products should be completely banned? What's better for public health? Should e-cigarettes be welcomed as a way to stop conventional smoking? Call us with your questions and comments on 233388266 or email backchat@rthk.hk.

    Facilities for Foreign Domestic Helpers on their Days Off / World No Tobacco Day

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Jim Gould

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're talking about the opportunities available to domestic helpers on their days off, and public attitudes towards them. There's been a strong reaction to recent comments by New People's Party legislator Eunice Yung, who said helpers gathering in public places on Sundays caused inconvenience and hygiene problems. Helpers support groups called her comments racist and offensive. And later Ms Yung gave an apology, saying she hadn't meant to cause offence, but rather to highlight the lack of facilities available. So what to you think? Should more alternatives be provided to domestic helpers in terms of activities and meeting places? Should they be discouraged from gathering in Central on Sundays? Are they, and their contributions to Hong Kong's economy and society, given enough recognition? Leave a message here, or email us at backchat@rthk, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20, efforts to combat smoking.
