Holding answer received on 08 December 2014

The Government has not held any discussions with the Hong Kong Police to verify whether any of the tear gas canisters used during the protests in Hong Kong on 28 September 2014 were manufactured by a UK company nor have we sought independent confirmation. We judge that Hong Kong Police have generally approached the protests carefully and proportionately, but will keep this under review as the situation progresses.
