    Small-house policy

    On Monday’s Backchat, the small-house policy.
    The Court of Appeal on Wednesday restored the full rights of male indigenous villagers to build their own homes, as it overturned a lower court's ruling that narrowed the Small House Policy.
    The ruling came after Kwok Cheuk-kin, known as "the king of judicial reviews," along with social worker Hendrick Lui Chi-hang filed a judicial review against the policy, on the grounds that it discriminates against non-indigenous people as well as female indigenous villagers.
    What impact will the ruling have on land and housing supply in Hong Kong? Are ding rights fair? Are they in the Basic Law?

    On Friday's Backchat, we'll be discussing legal aspects of the National Security Law on Hong Kong. 


    Many features are proving controversial - minimum sentences, bail, the status of the NSL and the meaning of certain terms, jurisdiction, choosing judges, and power of interpretation. 

    What do you make of the law, legally speaking?
