The British government must fulfil its responsibilities towards the people of Hong Kong, a bishop has told the Foreign Secretary.

In a letter to Dominic Raab, Bishop Declan Lang of Clifton said he was “deeply concerned” by China’s attempted power grabs in the region and called on the government to honour the Sino-British joint declaration, in which China promised to respect Hong Kong’s autonomy.

“Like so many others in the Catholic community I am deeply concerned by the continuing erosion of autonomy, suppression of political freedoms, and violent response to peaceful protests taking place in breach of this treaty,” Bishop Lang said.
