HC Deb 05 November 1986 vol 103 c450W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government towards the peaceful reunification of China; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Renton

Since 1972 successive Governments have acknowledged the position of the Chinese Government that Taiwan is a province of the People's Republic of China. We consider that this matter is China's internal affair to be settled by the Chinese people themselves.
