§ Miss Lestor

§ Mr. Kershaw
The numbers of inhabitants of dependent territories thought to be solely citizens of the United Kingdom and Colonies are estimated to be as follows :
Bahamas 142,600 Bermuda 45,700 British Honduras 115,000 British Indian Ocean Territories No permanent population British Solomon Islands Protectorate 3,000 British Virgin Islands 9,700 Cayman Islands 400 Falkland Islands and Dependencies 2,100 Gibraltar 27,100 Gilbert and Ellis Islands 52,500 Hong Kong 2,410,000 Montserrat 12,000 New Hebrides (Anglo /French Condominium) 850 Pitcairn Under 100 St. Helena and Dependencies : St. Helena 4,900 Ascension 1,070 Tristan da Cunha 300 Seychelles 51,500 Turks and Caicos Islands 5,400
In Hong Kong the overwhelming majority are Chinese by race and would presumably be considered by the Chinese authorities to be also nationals of China.
