Britain said it was deeply concerned by reports that China’s parliament had passed national security legislation for Hong Kong, describing it as a “grave step”.
“We are deeply concerned by unconfirmed reports that Beijing has passed the national security law,” Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said. “This would be a grave step.”
“Once we have seen the full legislation, we will make a further statement,” Raab said.
