Ordinance

February 26, 1844, Ordinance No. 1 of 1844, titled An Ordinance to define the law relating to slavery in Hong Kong.

The Ordinance was subsequently disallowed by Queen Victoria, as it was considered that the British Imperial Statutes for the abolition of slavery extended by their own proper force and authority to Hong Kong."
