Millions of Hong Kongers Are Offered Chance to Emigrate to U.K.

LONDON—British Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned China’s decision to enforce a new national security law on Hong Kong and retaliated with new rules to make it easier for millions of people from its former colony to emigrate to the U.K.

Mr. Johnson said Wednesday that the Chinese security law “constitutes a clear and serious breach” of an agreement between the two countries that aimed to ensure Hong Kong remained largely autonomous from Beijing up until 2047 after the departure of the last British governor in 1997.
