HC Deb 03 April 1951 vol 486 c14W
32. Mr. H. Davies

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Hong Kong Government will give facilities to the People's Government of China for the establishment of a selling agency in Hong Kong, in view of their desire to avoid the profits of the middle men.

Mr. J. Griffiths

There is no bar to legitimate trade in Hong Kong in conformity with existing regulations and in this respect an agency of the Chinese People's Government is in the same position as any other trading organisation.
