The latest report on the implementation of the Sino-British joint declaration on Hong Kong was published today. Copies have been placed in the Library of the House. A copy of the report is also available on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office website (www.fco.gov.uk). The report covers the period from 1 January to 30 June 2006. It includes a foreword by my right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary (Mrs Margaret Beckett). I commend the report to the House.
