§ SIR JOHN D. DICKSON-POYNDER (Wilts, Chippenham)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any steps are being taken by the Government to carry out the recommendation of the Hong Kong Government—namely, that for the protection of Hong Kong it is deemed advisable 103 to acquire from China Mirs Bay, and that portion of the coast line of Kowloon exactly opposite to Hong Kong?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. G. N. CURZON,) Lancashire, S.W., Southport
I do not think my hon. Friend can have seen my reply to a similar Question on Monday last, when I said that the question of the proper security of our possessions at Hong Kong has for some time past engaged the attention of Her Majesty's Government.
