HL Deb 18 March 1807 vol 9 c147
Mr. Wilberforce ,

lord Howick, and several members of the house of commons, brought up the Slave Trade Abolition bill, agreed to with amendments.

Lord Grenville

called the attention of the house to this subject, which he considered one of the most important that could occupy the attention of their lordships. With respect to the amendments made in this bill, he was satisfied they were calculated to carry its principles better into effect. It was, however, necessary, that time should be given for consideration, and he therefore moved that the bill, with the amend ments, be printed. Ordered. His lordship then stated, that if the prints should be on the table before Monday, he should move the consideration of the amendments on that day.
