HC Deb 29 July 1947 vol 441 c46W
Mr. Bartlett

asked the secretary of state for the Colonies whether he is aware of the disappointment caused in Hong Kong by the fact that neither he nor the Under-Secretary of State has found time to visit the Colony since its liberation from the Japanese; and whether he will take steps to remove this disappointment at the earliest possible moment

Mr. Creech Jones

I am well aware that such a visit would be appreciated and would be of considerable advantage to all concerned. I shall certainly bear the matter closely in mind, but I regret that I cannot yet say when it will be practicable for the Parliamentary Under-Secretary or myself to visit Hong Kong
