§ Lord Avebury
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What recommendations the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child made, at its January 1995 meeting, on the implementation of the 11WA convention in the dependent territory of Hong Kong, and what steps are they taking to comply therewith.
§ Baroness Chalker of Wallasey:
After the examination last January of the initial report of the United Kingdom under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Committee on the Rights of the Child recommended that information on implementation of the convention in Hong Kong be submitted by 1996. We intend to submit an initial report on Hong Kong during 1996, in time for it to be examined by the committee before 30 June 1997.
