Traditional/Simplified Chinese forms in Hong Kong?

This is not entirely on topic, I realise, but nor is it entirely off.

I am interested to know what is happening in Kong Kong with regards to the
use of traditional or simplified forms of Chinese ideographs. Is there
pressure from the central government in Beijing for Hong Kong to adopt the
simplified forms? Or are the Hong Kong Chinese to continue using the
traditional forms?

If anyone knows of any URLs or publications with information on this
situation, please send me e-mail. Thanks.
