HC Deb 11 February 1991 vol 185 c303W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what arrangements he has made to safeguard the position after 1999 of Catholics in Hong Kong who do not join the Patriotic Chinese Church; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The Sino-British joint declaration on the future of Hong Kong, the Basic Law for the Hong Kong special administrative region and the international covenant on civil and political rights, which will continue to apply to Hong Kong after 1997, all make provision for the continuation of freedom of religious belief and practice in Hong Kong after 1997.
