25 June 2019
Speaking during Foreign & Commonwealth Office Oral Questions this morning, the Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt said:
"We remain very concerned with the situation in Hong Kong and I raised those concerns with the Chief Executive on 12 June."
"I today urge the Hong Kong SAR Government to establish a robust, independent investigation into the violent scenes that we saw."
"The outcome of that investigation will inform our assessment of future export license applications to the Hong Kong Police."
"And we will not issue any further export licenses for crowd control equipment to Hong Kong unless we are satisfied that concerns raised on human rights and fundamental freedoms have been thoroughly addressed."
