Hong Kong University Press

This chapter examines the growing influence of local stakeholders in the governance of Hong Kong in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Unofficial members of the Executive and Legislative Councils took the lead in manoeuvring the British government into abandoning proposals over an issue as fundamental as constitutional reform during the years following World War II.
