Comparing Colonial Sites book
Colonial contagious diseases (CD) legislation operated in almost all of Britain's overseas possessions, but this book will focus principally on such laws in four important colonies. In Hong Kong, formal regulation of brothels preceded the British law, introduced first in 1857. In India, the 1864 Cantonment Act brought regulation to military zones, while the 1868 Indian Contagious Diseases Act extended it to the cities. Queensland passed a Contagious Diseases Act in 1868 and the Straits Settlements adopted its first CD ordinance in 1870.
