The scene at the Cenotaph. The Armed Forces will shortly lead the nation in marking the centenary of the end of the First World War and in remembering all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

In Dec 1941, British, Indian and Canadian troops and HK Chinese volunteers outnumbered 4:1 defending HK. 1100 servicemen and police officers and 4000 civilians died, 1200 went missing, and 10,000 were taken prisoner. Honoured to lay a wreath this morning.

A real pleasure to meet Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal’s Mr Justice Ribeiro. Nine UK judges currently serve as non-permanent judges of the Court. Confidence in the rule of law is vital to HK’s continued success.

Fascinating discussion with young Hongkongers about the challenges and opportunities they face as HK’s next generation. Thanks and best wishes for the future to all of them.

Good to see FT Asia Editor . UK remains very concerned by non-renewal of Victor Mallet’s visa and his denial of entry yesterday. Undermines freedom of speech and freedom of the press, both guaranteed by the Joint Declaration and the Basic Law.
