Slave Trade Adviser to the Treasury: Report Books
This series consists of entry books, known as 'Government Reports', which contain reports of the slave trade adviser on questions referred to him by the Treasury for report. They concern matters arising out of cases in the Admiralty, Vice-Admiralty, and Mixed Commission courts under the Proceeds of Captured Slavers Act 1821 and other measures relating to the suppression of slavery. Down to 1848 they also contain entries of associated papers. There is also a volume containing Treasury minutes referred to in the reports, 1860 to 1869.
