HC Deb 20 September 1841 vol 59 cc665-7

15,000l. for the religious and moral instruction of the emancipated Negro population having been proposed,

Mr. Williams

objected to the vote. It was on the whole as much as was voted I for education in England.

Mr. V. Smith

said, that his noble Friend (Lord J. Russell) some time before leaving office, had addressed a circular to the different West Indian colonies stating that he could no longer consent to this charge for the instruction of the Negro population, when so small a sum was voted for education at home.

Vote agreed to.
