    Special edition: 2024-25 budget (part 1)

    On Thursday's special edition of Backchat, we're examining the 2024-25 budget.

    Delivering his financial blueprint at the Legislative Council on Wednesday, the Financial Secretary Paul Chan announced a wide range of measures—from the much-expected removal of all remaining property curbs to the extension of tax concessions for electric vehicles, and $65 million to help develop Hong Kong into a green maritime fuel-bunkering centre.
    However, there was a mixture of good and bad news about Hong Kong’s economy. Unemployment is down, while both economic growth and visitor arrivals are up. But so too is the budget deficit, which will surpass HK$100 billion this year—almost twice last year's forecast.
    And although there are no plans for a sales tax, some other taxes are increasing, with the government planning to collect a 3% Hotel Accommodation Tax.

    We find out more.

    Monitoring of patients with violent tendencies / Pneumonia superbug treatment

    主持人:Janice Wong and Rainbow Leung

    On Wednesday's Backchat we're talking about proposals to tighten up monitoring of psychiatric patients with violent tendencie, in the wake of the horrific double-murder at a Diamond Hill mall earlier this month.

    For now, patients who were admitted to hospital involuntarily and are diagnosed to have violent tendencies must comply with certain conditions even after they're discharged, such as requirements on taking their medication and attending follow-up consultations.

    But these conditions cannot currently be imposed on patients who were admitted on a voluntary basis — who make up the majority of psychiatric patients.

    Lawmakers say it's time to change this, and the government should consider imposing legal requirements on voluntarily-admitted patients as well.

    Will such requirements help psychiatric patients? Can it make the city safer?

    After 9:45am, we'll look at the Polytechnic University's study on a pneumonia superbug treatment.
