For the two weeks prior to his departure for Hong Kong, James Stewart Lockhart had a series of meetings at the Colonial Office about the New Territories. At the end of the fortnight's journey, he had gathered the mass of information required by the British Government and had done so with sufficient tact and courtesy to have been, on the whole, well received by the inhabitants of the New Territories. His report on the New Territories gave him the opportunity to consolidate his ideas about minimizing British control. The final decision regarding the New Territories was a compromise between Stewart Lockhart's proposals and the political wishes of the Colonial Office. By 1901, Stewart Lockhart had been Hong Kong's Colonial Secretary for six years, and his restless, competitive spirit was seeking new challenges.
