§ Mr. Renton
My right hon. and learned Friend has not made a recent visit to Hong Kong or Singapore. But I visited Hong Kong between 27 and 31 October, and stopped over in Singapore on 31 October on my way to Indonesia. In Hong Kong I was able to see recent developments in the territory, to meet a broad cross section of Hong Kong people, and to hold wide-ranging discussions with the Executive Council and Government officials. I attended the opening session of the new58W Legislative Council. My brief visit to Singapore enabled me to have a useful meeting with the Singaporean Minister of State for Health and Foreign Affairs.
