Mr. Parry

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on discussions he has had with the Legislative Council deputation from Hong Kong about the future of Hong Kong. [4589]

Mr. Hanley

My right hon. and learned Friend the Foreign Secretary and I held separate meetings with LegCo delegation on 12 November. We discussed a range of current issues, including: immigration and nationality questions, notably British citizenship for Hong Kong dependent territory citizens and the ethnic minorities; visa-free travel for holders of the passport of the Hong Kong special aministrative region; the future application to Hong Kong of the UN human rights covenants; Vietnamese migrants; and the work of the Sino-British joint liaison group after 30 June 1997.
