HC Deb 24 January 1832 vol 9 c810
Captain Yorke

said, that in the late Convention entered into between France and this country, agreeing to a mutual right of search, it was provided, by the 7th article, that vessels taken with slaves on board should be delivered over to the jurisdiction of that Power to which they belonged. This was quite a new regulation. He wished, therefore, to know whether the effect of it would be to take away from the captors of slave-vessels the usual remuneration?

Sir James Graham

observed, that the point was to be matter of future arrangement.
