To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the application after 30 June 1997 of each of those International Labour Organisation conventions that (a) do and (b) do not currently apply in Hong Kong.

It has been agreed in the Sino-British joint liaison group that relevant international labour conventions which currently apply to Hong Kong shall continue to apply to the Hong Kong SAR.
