    2024-25 budget review: lifting of housing curbs / Electric vehicle support measures

    On Friday's Backchat, we talk about the lifting of property curbs -- also known as "spicy measures".

    Introduced over a decade ago to rein in speculation, the Special Stamp Duty (SSD), Buyer's Stamp Duty (BSD) and New Residential Stamp Duty (NRSD) are no longer needed to be paid when purchasing a home, in what the real estate sector hopes will attract more buyers. The measures were announced by the Financial Secretary Paul Chan on Wednesday.
    Speaking on a Cantonese phone-in programme following his budget speech, Mr. Chan said that this is the right time to get rid of the levies, citing little speculative activity and adequate home supplies.
    However, the minister highlighted that his administration would keep an eye on the market situation, and be ready to re-introduce the curbs if needed.
    After 9:45, we'll gather views on the extension of electric vehicle tax incentives.

    Personal injuries in restaurants and liability / HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens

    主持人:Janice Wong and Paul Zimmerman

    On Wednesday's Backchat, we're talking about legal liability in the catering industry.

    The debate has been raging for years over who should be responsible when people are scalded by hot food or drinks at restaurants.

    Last week an 8-year-old girl suffered second-degree burns on her forehead, face and arm after a collision with another customer at a Tseung Kwan O restaurant spilled piping-hot coffee on the child.

    And earlier this month, a Florida court ruled that McDonald's was liable for burns suffered by another little girl after a steaming hot Chicken McNugget fell on her thigh in 2019.

    So what do you think? Who's responsible for such accidents? Restaurants or customers? Should the temperature of hot drinks and food be regulated?

    After 9:45, we'll look at the HKFC Citi Soccer Sevens which will take place over the weekend.

    Let us know what you think. You can leave a message here on our Facebook page, email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or give us a call on 23388266.
