    On Tuesday's Backchat, we're talking about a planned increase of the plastic bag levy.
    The Legislative Council is due to consider a proposal on Tuesday to raise the charge for plastic shopping bags in supermarkets and some other stores from $50 cents to $1 dollar. But campaigners say that's not enough.
    The environmental group, Greeners Action, has conducted a survey which found that more than 75 percent of respondents believed that people would only start using fewer plastic bags if the levy was raised to at least HK$2 per bag, while only 21 percent would reduce their use if the levy was set at HK$1.

    Why do HK citizens still use too many plastic bags? Are they too convenient, or too cheap? And what impact would a $2 charge have on the underprivileged? 
    After 9.15am, the Hong Kong Palace Museum has finally opened its doors! We'll talk to a prominent artist and architect.

    On Mondays Backchat, the response to the latest anti-epidemic fund, and new woes for Prince Andrew.

    The government has announced a 3.57-billion-dollar Covid relief package, aimed at helping businesses and individuals hit by the latest social distancing restrictions that will remain in place into Chinese New Year.

    But many businesses are complaining that this isn’t nearly enough to offset the huge losses they’ll incur in this traditionally lucrative period… while lawmakers are also calling for another round of consumption vouchers for all.

    What do you think about the government package? Is it enough? Or has the administration given enough to businesses already?

    After 9.15am, we'll talk about British royal Prince Andrew, after he was stripped of military titles and royal patronages as he faces a civil sex abuse case in the United States.
