(by Private Notice) asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the strike at Hong Kong has broken out afresh, under the influence of Bolshevist propaganda, whether trade is much impeded by the recrudescence of this movement, and whether he can give the latest news as to the position?

I have received no information from the Governor as to any further trouble since the recent settlement of the strike in the Colony. I have, however, asked the Governor for a report by telegram.
