What does the chair of the Australian parliament’s Intelligence Committee have in common with a Greens MP, a former Japanese Defence Minister, and a former Liberal Canadian attorney-general?

The answer is China.

Today, a group of 19 MPs from eight countries and the European Parliament, representing a swathe of parties from right across the political spectrum have announced a new international coalition of legislators who want their governments to take a tougher and collective stance towards China.

The founder of the group – former Tory party leader Iain Duncan Smith – said the business community should also take notice of the new international coalition of legislators, singling out HSBC bank for its “appalling” backing of China’s new security law cracking down on Hong Kong.
