More than one-third of respondents to a survey said anti-gambling education should be added into the curriculum of primary and secondary schools. The survey, conducted this month by Hong Kong Progressive Alliance legislator Tang Siu-tong, interviewed 947 young people on their views about gambling in Hong Kong. It found that 68.6 per cent of respondents said they never took part in any form of gambling and 27.8 per cent said they only gambled occasionally. Only 20.3 per cent said they were aware of the details of the government's anti-gambling campaigns. Of those aged under 18, 40.7 per cent said they did not know the details of the anti-gambling campaigns, while 41.5 per cent said they had not heard of the campaigns before. To prevent people from becoming gambling addicts, 35.1 per cent of respondents said primary and secondary schools should teach students the dangers of gambling. Of those polled, 24.7 per cent said the government should step up measures to combat illegal gambling.
