To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when the Hong Kong Securities Review Committee report into recent events in the territory's stock and futures market will be published; and whether it will be investigating the role of senior officials and Stock Exchange Council members immediately prior to and during the recent closure of the exchanges.

The committee will use its best endeavours to submit its report by 16 May 1988, and the Hong Kong Government intend to publish it thereafter. The main task of the committee is to identify what changes are appropriate to maintain Hong Kong as an international financial centre, rather than to allocate blame for past events.
