House of Lords
Lord Avebury (Spokesperson in the Lords (Civil Liberties), Home Affairs; Liberal Democrat)
asked Her Majesty's Government:
How many solely British nationals (overseas) have been denied entry to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and deported to the United Kingdom since 1 January 2005; and what reasons were given to the British consulate-general for their exclusion in each case.
Lord Malloch-Brown (Minister of State, Foreign & Commonwealth Office; Labour)
We have no records of any British nationals (overseas) ever being refused entry to Hong Kong. Hong Kong's immigration department has told us that it does not keep such figures. In any case, all BN(O) passport holders hold Hong Kong identity cards, and would normally use those to enter Hong Kong.
