Boris Johnson – 2021 Comments to Hong Kong Residents Moving to UK

The comments made by Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister, on 19 March 2021.

On behalf of the whole country I want to say how glad we are to have you here and how proud we are that you have chosen the UK to live.

I believe strongly in the prospects the UK can offer for those who want to make their lives here and I have no doubt that you are going to feel very much at home.

The UK has a long and proud history of embracing those who arrive on our shores seeking the inalienable rights and freedoms denied to them in their homeland. I am very proud that we have been able to make this offer to you and other British Nationals (Overseas).
