Former acting chief justice, Noel Power, and chairman of HSBC Holdings, John Bond, have been knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honours List released this morning. Mr Power, 69, ended a 34-year career as Hong Kong's longest-serving judge last month. After the resignation of chief justice Yang Ti Liang to seek the chief executive's post, Mr Power held the fort for 10 months until Andrew Li Kwok-nang took over after the handover. Mr Power, who is well-known for his love of food and wine, came to Hong Kong from his native Australia in October 1965. Mr Bond, 57, joined Hongkong Bank in 1961. He spent most of his career in Asia but returned to the UK in 1993 when he was made group chief executive of HSBC Holdings. He became chairman in May last year. Clinton Leeks, former Airport Authority corporate development director, is honoured with an OBE along with marine biologist Professor Brian Morton. Mr Leeks was the face of the Airport Authority during its bungled opening before he took up a job with New World Telephone. He was appointed as the troubleshooter for the provisional Airport Authority in 1993 after serving as refugee co-ordinator, Government House private secretary and an assistant financial secretary. OBE recipient Professor Morton, the director of Hong Kong University's Swire Institute of Marine Science, was awarded the Order of the Golden Ark by the Netherlands royal family in 1997. Architect Sir Norman Foster, who designed the airport at Chek Lap Kok and the HSBC headquarters in Central, received a peerage in the honours list.
