On Thursday's Backchat: A look back at the Legco term; and the possible return of the cross-harbour swimming race.
The Legislative Council is today continuing its last full session of the current term, before it breaks ahead of elections in December which will return a new-look Legco.
This iteration of Legco is ending very differently from how it started...with all opposition lawmakers long gone, and the remaining pro-establishment lawmakers hailing this session as the most productive ever.
Of the 39 Government bills submitted this year, the vast majority have already been passed, and lawmakers are looking to finish their work over the next day or so.
We‘ll be getting assessments from our panel of guests this morning…
After 9.15am, we’ll be looking at plans for the first cross-harbour swimming race since 2018… and chat with a coach and a former participant.
