NAMES IN THE NEWS : Stay Away, Hong Kong Tells Royalty

June 30, 1989| From Times wire service s

HONG KONG — Administrators in Hong Kong have urged Britain's Prince and Princess of Wales not to make a planned visit to the colony in November because of growing anti-British sentiment, the South China Morning Post reported today.

Government officials refused comment on the report but diplomatic sources said they understood the visit was being reconsidered in the light of recent events in China and Hong Kong.

There is growing public resentment in Hong Kong at Britain's refusal to grant right of entry to the 3.25 million people entitled to hold a British Hong Kong passport.
