Demonstrators yesterday called on Governor Chris Patten to take the last 2,300 boat people with him when he leaves, after waylaying him and his family on their way to church. The Civil Force lobby group handed Mr Patten a letter calling on Britain to solve the issue before July 1 or take responsibility for Vietnamese left in the territory. The letter also called on the UN's High Commissioner for Refugees to repay the $1.1 billion loaned by Hong Kong to care for the refugees. About 40 protesters were waiting at the Church of St Benedict, Sha Tin, when Mr Patten arrived with wife Lavender and daughter Alice. He refused a 'gift' of a cloth bag with the slogan 'Boat People Problem - Britain's Responsibility'. Civil Force spokesman Tang Wing-cheong said: 'It's Britain's responsibility because it was the British Government that allowed them to come in the first place.' Civil Force has asked police for permission to stage a final protest on June 30 in Wan Chai as the Governor prepares to leave.
