    Fatal fire in Jordan / Greenpeace's waste-charging trial

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about fire safety -- after a blaze in Jordan left five people dead and more than 40 injured on Wednesday.

    Authorities have yet to confirm the cause of the tragedy, but a Fire Services Department spokesperson told RTHK earlier that some of the fire doors were broken, which may have led to heavy smoke in one of the staircases.
    According to a Buildings Department statement, the 60-year-old building had earlier been requested to carry out repair works, which includes the replacement of fire doors, and the provision of protected lobbies for the escape staircase. But the requests have not yet been met.
    How fire compliant are our buildings? What more can be done to improve fire safety?
    After 9:45, we find out more about a green group's waste- charging trial.

    2023 population figures / Calls to better regulate the use of bamboo scaffoldings

    主持人:Danny Gittings and Philip Wong

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're looking at the latest population figures which show a slight increase in both births as well as the total number of people living in Hong Kong.

    There were 33,200 births last year, according to figures from the Census and Statistics Department, up 2% on the previous year and the first increase since 2017. Hong Kong's population also rose by 0.4% to 7.5 million, something the government attributes to not only new births but also recent talent schemes and Hongkongers returning from overseas.
    However there were still more deaths than births last year and Hong Kong's elderly population is expected to soar to 2.74 million in 2046, up from the current 1.45 million. So what do these figures tell us? We'll find out.
    After 9:45, we get the construction sector's views on calls to better regulate or even ban the use of bamboo scaffolding at construction sites after an accident killed two workers in Kai Tak on Tuesday. We'd love to know what you think.
