Text of House of Commons Motion
This House calls on Her Majesty’s Government to seek agreement with some of the other 53 Commonwealth countries to provide Hong Kong citizens with a second citizenship and potential place of abode; insists that the UK will not accept the abandonment of “two systems in one country”, guaranteed by international treaty and agreed by China; and recognises that Hong Kong’s industrious, dynamic, courageous, and diverse people, must be given a guarantee that they will be able to flourish economically, culturally, and socially, whilst living under the rule of law.
