When my hon. Friend says “they”, he is talking about the Chinese Government. Does he welcome the distinction that Bob Seely made at the start of the debate between the Government of China and the people? As someone who lived in China for two years, may I make a personal statement?

(The Member continued in Mandarin.)

For those who do not know any Mandarin—I appreciate that mine is rusty—that translates as: “I like the country and I like the people. It is the Government who have caused the concerns that are the focus of the debate today. It is the politicians and the political leadership of China that is the challenge.”
