§ Mr. Moyle
asked the Lord Privy Seal if he is satisfied that the Hong Kong Government secretariat confidential circular No. 106/82 banning homosexuals from employment in public services in Hong Kong accords with the obligation of the Hong Kong Government under article 25 (c) of the United Kingdom International convention on civil and political rights.
§ Mr. Humphrey Atkins
I am satisfied that the guidance in the circular will be applied in accordance with the Hong Kong Government's obligations under article 25(c) of the United Nations covenant on civil and political rights.
