Hong Kong (5 Dec 1984)

Mr Jack Ashley: The hon. Member for Boothferry (Sir P. Bryan) spoke with great knowledge of Hong Kong, and hon. Members listened to him with respect. A few weeks ago, I visited Hong Kong and China. It was interesting to compare the reactions in the two places. In Hong Kong there was a welcome for the agreement but some reservations about the future. The agreement was enthusiastically acclaimed in China....

Hong Kong: Human Rights - Question for Short Debate (4 Jun 2020)

Baroness Goudie: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Anelay, for this debate. Nothing is more fundamental to human rights in Hong Kong and elsewhere than an independent, impartial judiciary. Hong Kong has that; mainland China has not. An important feature of the judicial system in Hong Kong is that, since handover, its local Court of Final Appeal has replaced appeals to the Privy Council. This was...

Hong Kong (14 Nov 1996)

Dr Jeremy Bray: Debates on Hong Kong have over the years tended to demonstrate the width of agreement in the House. There are exceptions to that. The recollections of the hon. and learned Member for Burton (Sir I. Lawrence) of debates in the 1980s seem a little incomplete. Some of us were arguing precisely what he was saying, not only in the House but in Hong Kong. My hon. Friend the Member for Warley. East...

Hong Kong (16 May 1984)

Dr Jeremy Bray: There is a certain honourable continuity in the dealings of this House with Hong Kong. Some 21 years ago, as a new Member, I was summoned to the room of my then party leader, who is now in another place, and was somewhat surprised to find with him the right hon. Member for Old Bexley and Sidcup (Mr. Heath). The right hon. Gentleman had been dispatched by the Foreign Office to tell my party...

Orders of the Day — British Nationality (Hong Kong) Bill (19 Apr 1990)

Mr Peter Blaker: ...a faster pace towards democracy is the answer to the problem which the Bill seeks to address.

Member for Birmingham, Sparkbrook (Mr. Hattersley) has left the Chamber. His speech set a new record for...

We are pleased to see that, in the most part, the people of Hong Kong have peacefully exercised their rights to freedom of speech and assembly, as guaranteed in the Sino-British Joint Declaration. However all allegations of inappropriate use of force by the Hong Kong police should be fully...

Hong Kong — Question for Short Debate (16 Oct 2014)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: My Lords, this has been an expert and sober debate. On these occasions, I remember that on my first visit to China and Hong Kong, the most useful briefing I had was from the noble Lord, Lord Wilson of Tillyorn. I think that he was then a little less grey than he is now and I suspect that I was, too. The Government firmly believe that the United Kingdom and China share interests in a...
