asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what steps he proposes to take in Hong Kong and the New Territories to counteract hostile propaganda broadcast from Peking and at Lowu frontier post in particular.

The true facts about current affairs are made known in Hong Kong by the Hong Kong Public Relations Office, through B.B.C. broadcasts and through the services supplied to various Hong Kong newspapers by reputable news agencies. I do not consider that special action is required to counter propaganda from the loudspeakers at Lowu, as this is a sparsely populated area and the propaganda is directed mainly at travellers to and from Canton by rail.
