Alert me about debates like this

Lieut.-Colonel J. WARD:

I beg to present a petition from the British inhabitants of the Crown Colony of Hong Kong, numbering 1,500, praying for the abolition, so far as non-Chinese unofficial members of the Council are concerned, of the principle of Government nominees, and the substitution of popular election thereon and the adoption, so far as non-Chinese members of the Council are concerned, of a larger electoral body than exists at present.
