Ministers and Government Officials maintain a regular dialogue with all sides of the constitutional reform debate in Hong Kong, including the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government, the Central People’s Government, and representatives of pro-democracy groups. During my visit to Hong Kong in January, I met with the President of the Legislative Council as well as a number of legislators from a range of parties, and with a range of views on the constitutional reform debate. I previously met with two prominent pro-democracy figures, Anson Chan and Martin Lee, during their visit to London in July. Separately, the Deputy Prime Minister, my right hon. Friend the member for Sheffield, Hallam (Mr Clegg) also met with them.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office issued statements on the situation in Hong Kong on both 29 September and 2 October and I issued a Written Ministerial Statement on 13 October. The Government’s next Six Monthly Report on Hong Kong will be published in February.
