HC Deb 26 July 1967 vol 751 cc162-3W
96. Sir W. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs in view of the fact that Taiwan is prepared to provide Hong Kong with all daily necessities such as rice, meat, vegetables and fruits during the present period of unrest, whether he will send a suitable acknowledgment of this gesture to the Provincial Government and the people of Taiwan.

Mr. William Rodgers

To my knowledge, the Taiwan authorities have made no direct approach to us to supply food to Hong Kong. The question of an acknowledgment does not therefore arise.
