  • 柯利達爵士,GCMG(Sir Percy Cradock,1923年10月26日-2010年1月22日),英國外交官及公務員,1978年至1983年出任英國駐華大使,是英方的「中國通」和主要參與草擬《中英聯合聲明》的英方人物。 柯利達爵士在1954年加入外交部,1967年中國大陸爆發文化大革命時,他正在英國駐北京代辦處任職。同年8月22日,北京發生火燒英國代辦處事件,柯利達與代辦等其他職工被紅衛兵毆傷,事後一度被軟禁。柯利達後來在1968年至1969年出任英國駐華代辦,1978年接替尤德爵士任駐華大使,任內促成中、英雙方就香港前途展開談判、以及後來在1984年簽署《中英聯合聲明》,解決香港在1997年以後的主權問題。然而,他在前途談判中作出重大讓步,又強調與中方妥協對香港前途最為有利的看法,激起爭議,不少香港及英國輿論更批評他與英政府出賣港人利益。 儘管如此,柯利達仍深獲首相戴卓爾夫人信任,更在1985年起任三軍情報委員會主席。在1989年六四事件後,他多番訪問北京領導人,設法維持《聯合聲明》,並成功爭取將日後香港特別行政區立法會在2007年有半數議席透直選產生的承諾,寫進《基本法》附件二內。柯利達後來就新機場計劃向中方多次「解畫」,迫使首相馬卓安於1991年訪華示好,引來馬卓安的不滿。馬卓安因柯利達與港督衛奕信爵士對華過份妥協,在1992年將兩人撤換,且以黨友彭定康出任港督。
