|Sir Charles Philip Haddon-Cave|
|Born||6 July 1925|
|Died||28 September 1999(aged 74)|
Sir Charles Philip Haddon-Cave (better known as Philip Haddon-Cave; Chinese: 夏鼎基爵士 ), KBE, CMG (6 July 1925 – 27 September 1999) was Financial Secretary of Hong Kong from 1971 to 1981. During the period when he was in charge of the economic policy of the Hong Kong government, he adopted "positive non-interventionism" as its chief principle. He was subsequently appointed Chief Secretary, in which post he served from 1981 to 1985.
Despite his long years of service in Hong Kong, Haddon-Cave was famous for his dislike of Chinese food, and at Chinese banquets, Haddon-Cave frequently insisted upon ordering steak.
After leaving Hong Kong, he spent his retirement quietly in England where son Sir Charles Anthony was appointed to the High Court in 2011. Many of Haddon-Cave's family and relatives still live in Hong Kong, including younger son Francis who was called to the bar in 1999.
