The government is studying whether it needs to expand no-smoking areas, says Secretary for Food and Health York Chow Yat-ngok. He said a growing trend of smokers gathering in the vicinity of no-smoking areas - including entrances to offices and malls - affected passers-by. He said the government would take public expectations into account.
