HC Deb 10 February 1998 vol 306 c142W
28. Mr. Bill O'Brien

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the United Kingdom's relations with China. [26459]

Mr. Fatchett

As my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary said when he visited China in January, there is new life in Britain's relations with China. We have made a fresh start down a broad road. We need a healthy relationship which allows us to address together the full range of issues, including difficult areas such as human rights.
