On Tuesday's Backchat: Combatting child abuse; and illegal parking.
The welfare secretary, Law Chi-kwong, has spoken in support of a proposal from the Law Reform Commission to create a new criminal offence targeting people who fail to protect children at risk from abuse.
A sub-committee launched a public consultation exercise in 2019 and has now put forward its recommendations, which also cover protection for the elderly and people with disabilities. Anyone failing to take action to protect the vulnerable, such as making a report to the police, could face a lengthy prison term if the victim suffers serious harm or dies.
It said the law should cover anyone who has a duty of care, including members of the same household, relatives, domestic helpers, social workers and teachers.
After 9:15am, as we prepare to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, we'll take a look at illegal parking as the police warn drivers who park where they are not supposed to that their vehicles could get multiple tickets.

On Thursday’s Backchat, the Qianhai economic zone; and Hong Kong’s third runway.
The Qianhai economic zone in Shenzhen will see its size increase by about eight times, as part of a plan to foster closer business and technology ties with Hong Kong, and to help the development of the Greater Bay Area.
The project includes plans to attract universities from Hong Kong, Macau and overseas to set up branches there, and finance companies will be allowed to provide cross-border services. Business groups have welcomed the potential opportunities and benefits, but say the governments on the two sides need to work out a number of arrangements.
After 9:15am, we’re discussing the planned opening of Hong Kong International
Airport’s third runway, which is set for the second half of next year.
