The government has been urged to expand legislation against smokers in non-smoking areas. The call came from a group of Hong Kong University medical students, who collected some 2,000 signatures in support of their campaign.

They said the administration should look into examples in Ireland, where a restaurant owner would also have legal responsibilities if its customers violated smoking bans there. The group said such stronger powers would have a greater deterrent effect against offenders.
