Press Freedom In Hong Kong

EDM number 1420 in 1993-94, proposed by Robin Corbett on 29/06/1994.

That this House views with concern the slow progress being made by the Hong Kong Government towards reviewing and reforming legislation relating to press freedom; notes that only three laws, relating to broadcasting and telecommunications, have been amended and only two more, on public order and summary offences, gazetted; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to take urgent steps to amend existing legislation, particularly that covering official secrets and emergency regulations and to firmly establish press freedom prior to 1997. (Relevant registered interest declared).

This motion has been signed by a total of 48 MPs.
