I welcome today’s announcement from the Government on citizenship for people from Hong Kong – it’s the right thing to do.
Our Government needs to stand up for democracy, human rights & the rules of law – China must be held accountable for its actions and know the world is watching.
This was my question to the Foreign Secretary:
“I have been contacted by a number of constituents who are worried about the safety of loved ones in Hong Kong. What guidance is the UK Foreign Office offering to British nationals living overseas in Hong Kong, and when does the Foreign Secretary expect the BNO passport holder visa rights extension to be implemented? Now more than ever, the UK must fulfil its commitment to the people of Hong Kong.”
