To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on recent discussions with the Chinese Government concerning the pensions of Hong Kong civil servants after 1997.

Mr. Goodlad

The Hong Kong Government intend to establish a HK$7 billion pension reserve fund to reinforce existing statutory pension safeguards and the guarantees in the Sino-British joint declaration on the continued payment of Hong Kong public service pensions. This subject has been discussed by the British and Chinese Governments in the Sino-British joint liaison group.
