Andrew Bridgen calls on Government to back Hong Kong protestors on extradition treaty

25th June 2019

Following the demonstrations in Hong Kong, Andrew Bridgen calls on the Government to support the demands of the protesters for the permanent withdrawal of the contentious extradition treaty and urge China to uphold the one country, two systems agreement.

My right hon. Friend has said that one country, two systems must mean exactly that. Will he support the legitimate demands of the protesters, many of whom are waving Union flags in the hope of support from this Government and this House for the permanent withdrawal of this most contentious Bill?

I called publicly for the Bill to be halted, and I agree with what the Hong Kong Government belatedly decided to do, which is to commit to not bringing it back until concerns about democratic rights have been addressed.
