Govt to review guesthouse laws
(01-22 14:16)

The Secretary for Home Affairs, Tsang Tak-sing, says a review of the guesthouse ordinance will take place around the middle of this year.
But he told legislators that it wasn't a knee-jerk reaction to a fire in North Point last month which left more than 20 people injured. Tsang also stressed that the office of the licensing authority has been stepping up enforcement action against unlicensed premises. --RTHK
