I wonder whether a letter written in Chinese would get any response from the UK government?

It would, but it would take a while as with all things in the UK.
Don't forget that the UK is a true multi-ethnic society and in some places in Greater London, even road signs and train station signs are translated into Urdo. Most government offices and all police stations have lines to free 24 hour translation services in most languages.
In Taiwan, there is only really one other language alternative which is English. In the UK, official pamphlets are often translated into about 8 different languages. Then there is the wider provision to allow people to settle in their own ethnic communities like China town and Indian streets.
I doubt if a letter written in Arabic would get a response from the Taiwanese government.
