    Regulation of Hong Kong's home decoration services / Hong Kong's first hydrogen double decker bus

    On Monday's Backchat, we're looking at whether home renovation services need to be regulated.

    The Consumer Council said it receives hundreds of complaints each year about renovation firms, regarding issues such as the quality of work carried out, completion times and cost disputes.
    It warned that problems can crop up right at the beginning of the process, with a lot of quotations provided by firms leaving a lot to be desired.
    To help resolve the problem, the watchdog is now suggesting the government introduce a standard quotation template, covering things such as separate costs for various materials, labour fees, payment schedules and remedies for any delays, so that potential customers can make meaningful comparisons between various renovation firms.
    How useful would such a system be? Should the industry regulate itself, or is it a job for the government?
    After 9:45am, we’ll find out more about Hong Kong’s first hydrogen-powered double decker that just hit the road today.

    New findings on building safety / Launch of the world’s first geosynchronous orbit radar satellite

    主持人:Janice Wong and Danny Gittings

    On today's Backchat, we look at building safety after experts identified some two dozen buildings on Hong Kong Island that are at an immediate risk of having falling masonry.

    The Hong Kong Institution of Building Inspectors, together with the DAB party, inspected 50 buildings that were considered high-risk due to their age and inspection status.
    Half of them were found to have various defects that experts say could pose an immediate risk to the community.
    The findings come amid a spate of incidents involving concrete falling from buildings over the last couple of months.
    After 9:45am, we learn more on the launch of the world’s first geosynchronous orbit radar satellite.
