§ 23. Mr. Gammans
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what reply he has sent, or proposes to send, to the request made by the Reform Club of Hong Kong that he should reconsider his decision not to visit the Colony.
My right hon. Friend has informed the Reform Club of Hong Kong, through the Governor, that he much regrets his inability to include Hong Kong in his tour owing to the shortness of time at his disposal.
