Letter to the Parliamentary Relations
and Devolution Department, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, from
Kit Dawnay, Committee Specialist, 22 April 2004
At its meeting on Tuesday, the Committee discussed
the political and human rights situation in the Special Administrative
Region (SAR) of Hong Kong. Their debate sprang from reports of
the demonstration that took place on 11 April 2004 in protest
at the latest efforts to curtail democracy in the SAR.
As a result of the discussion, the Committee
has instructed me to write and request the Foreign Office's comments
on developments in Hong Kong since the elections of 24 November
2003. I would be grateful if I could receive a response to this
request no later than Monday 24 May.
