HC Deb 23 July 1845 vol 82 c970
Sir R. Peel

said, it would be remembered that when he moved the second reading of the Brazilian Slave Trade Bill, he was requested by an hon. Gentleman opposite to postpone the Committee until he had ascertained whether the correspondence which had passed between the Government of Brazil and this country, in reference to the subject of the Slave Trade, could be laid before the House; and that he had on that occasion promised that he would look into that correspondence, and if he found that he could, consistently with his public duty, produce it, he would. He had since examined the correspondence in question; and as he saw nothing in it which should prevent its production, he would now lay it on the Table, and he had no doubt that it would be in the hands of hon. Members to-morrow (this day).

Papers laid on the Table, and ordered to be printed.
