HC Deb 27 July 1988 vol 138 c304W
Mr. Tony Banks

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what additional measures aimed at educating the public are currently being considered by the Hong Kong authorities in respect of responsibilities under the convention on international trade in endangered species.

Mrs. Chalker

The Hong Kong Government, in conjunction with the World Wild Life Fund for Nature (Hong Kong), are intensifying their publicity and educational efforts by displaying more posters at entry points—for example, train stations and the airport—and other public places; by distributing more leaflets to schools, travel agents and the general public; by issuing more press releases and making more radio and television announcements; by organising more exhibitions and seminars; and by producing an audio-slide programme for presentation in all country park visitors' centres.
