Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: 2022 Winter Olympics and Paralympics: Diplomatic Relations (30 Nov 2021)

Christine Jardine: Following the litany of abuses against the Uyghur Muslims and in Hong Kong, and, most recently, the international concern about the treatment of tennis star Peng Shuai, both the US President and the Prime Minister have admitted that they are considering a diplomatic boycott of the winter Olympics. Does the Minister agree that that has now taken on renewed urgency, and will she urge the Prime...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (29 Nov 2021)

Baroness Thornton: ...three. We support the Government’s strategy of tougher travel restrictions and mandatory face masks, as far as it goes. It seems that there is already real-world evidence from South Africa and Hong Kong that omicron is highly infectious, which begs the first question: why are the Government limiting the mandating of mask wearing to travel and to shops, and not extending it to indoor...

Armed Forces Bill - Third Reading: Motion (29 Nov 2021)

Lord Craig of Radley: ...late government amendments, have done a magnificent job; Jayne Scheier and all of them ought to be thanked very much for that effort. I hope that the Minister will not forget that I mentioned the Hong Kong veterans and have yet to have a decent reply about that. The issue has been outstanding for 35 years, so it is about time it was dealt with. I hope, too, that the amendments we have sent...

Covid-19 Update (26 Nov 2021)

Sajid Javid: ...taking, although I must stress that this is a fast-moving situation and there remains a high degree of uncertainty. The sequence of this variant, currently called B.1.1.529, was first uploaded by Hong Kong from a case of someone travelling from South Africa. The UK was the first country to identify the potential threat of this new variant and to alert international partners. Further cases...

Migrants - Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2021)

Baroness Fox of Buckley: not, as some assume, proof of widespread anti-immigrant sentiment. Let us note that 99.9% of the British public have a track record of humane generosity in, for example, welcoming any number of Hong Kong citizens fleeing authoritarianism. There are many examples, as the noble Baroness, Lady Hoey, explained. I remember when some at the Home Office crassly interpreted the Brexit vote...

China: Genocide - Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2021)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...say, “The public are behind us—let’s do something about it”. She also talked to us, as did my noble friend Lady O’Loan, about the wider consequences. The fearful harbinger of Hong Kong, as my noble friend reminded us, is held out in the context of Taiwan. The Minister was right to talk about the dangers that lurk in the Taiwan Strait and the South China Sea, and how we have to...

English Channel Small Boats Incident (25 Nov 2021)

Julie Marson: We have seen, with Afghanistan and Hong Kong, that the British people consistently react with incredible generosity of spirit towards people who are fleeing persecution, oppression and conflict. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the safe and legal routes to which she has referred consistently and which are central and integral to the Nationality and Borders Bill are vital and that they...

Army Restructuring: Future Soldier (25 Nov 2021)

Ben Wallace: ...Army that I think was hollowed out. The equipment did not quite work and the greatest adventure anyone had was probably going to Northern Ireland every two years—that was about as far as it went. Hong Kong had closed and there was a lack of sense of purpose and a lack of a clearly identified adversary that we were setting ourselves against. That is really important. This Army will be...

Business of the House (25 Nov 2021)

Iain Duncan Smith: ...mining of rare-earth materials that are used here in our solar array supply chains, and the Chinese Government’s terrible record on the Uyghur genocide, Tibetan slave labour, and the threats to Hong Kong and Taiwan, will the Leader of the House provide time for a debate on whether this Government—any Government—should boycott the winter Olympics, which should never have been awarded...

Armed Forces Bill - Report: Amendment 26 (23 Nov 2021)

Baroness Goldie: ...stages. I can tell the noble Lord, Lord Alton, that I have no magic wand that I can wave, and that this is another department’s responsibility. I can also confirm that the specific issues around Hong Kong are also under consideration.

Armed Forces Bill - Report: Amendment 3 (23 Nov 2021)

Baroness Goldie: ...6 and 7, and I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, for supporting them. I was aware during the debate that some contributors made fairly wide-ranging speeches, not least focusing on citizens of Hong Kong and former Hong Kong military service personnel. These are important issues, but I would rather deal with them under Amendment 26, which seems more relevant to that particular area of...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Passports: Hong Kong (23 Nov 2021)

Sarah Olney: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, what assessment she has made of the impact of the Hong Kong Government's announcement that it no longer recognises the British National (Overseas) passport as a valid travel document or proof of identify on holders of that passport being able to access their mandatory provident funds early.

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 280 (22 Nov 2021)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: more than putting “ski” on the back of every English word, he was locked up for contempt of court. I trust that has never happened to the right reverend Prelate with his interpretations. In Hong Kong, where I had considerable experience, the court interpreters were highly expert. They had to deal with a variety of languages from Putonghua, Cantonese to Mandarin, and a variety of...

Channel Crossings in Small Boats (22 Nov 2021)

Priti Patel: ...and why we are creating safe and legal routes. My right hon. Friend will be familiar with much of our work that has taken place thus far with, for example, British nationals overseas—people from Hong Kong—and the work that is taking place on Afghanistan. The removal of people with no legal right to be in the United Kingdom and all rights exhausted is at the heart of the new plan for...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: HSBC (18 Nov 2021)

Amanda Milling: The Government engages in regular dialogue with businesses active in Hong Kong and as a matter of course monitors the operation of the financial sector and its participants. Financial institutions operating in Hong Kong do so within a strict legal and regulatory framework. We are concerned that a number of recent decisions by the authorities in Hong Kong are further evidence of a determined...
