asked the Prime Minister if she will make a statement on her recent meeting with the Prime Minister of China.

[pursuant to her reply, 1 June 1985, c. 263]: At my first round of talks with Premier Zhao Ziyang on 3 June we signed two bilateral agreements, on economic co-operation and on co-operation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. We discussed a range of bilateral questions, including the ratification on 27 May of the joint declaration on the future of Hong Kong, and also a number of international issues. At our second round on 6 June we discussed economic co-operation and trade. Our exchanges were valuable and wide-ranging and reflected the new climate of our relations following the agreement on Hong Kong.
