© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Significance Why was Wilberforce important in ending the Slave Trade in 1807? Wilberforce was a Member of Parliament (MP). He delivered important speeches arguing for the ending of the Slave Trade. He worked closely with a religious group known as the Quakers who also opposed the Slave Trade. Quakers were not allowed to be MPs. Wilberforce was a member of the Church of England and therefore was not prevented from being an MP.

Many MPs had businesses connected to the Slave Trade. They feared the abolition of the Slave Trade would damage their businesses. For example, freed slaves would be more expensive to employ on sugar plantations in the West Indies and this would make sugar more expensive to buy.
© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Significance In 1791, Wilberforce introduced his first bill to Parliament, which called for the abolition of the Slave Trade in the West Indies. The bill was defeated, but Wilberforce continued campaigning for abolition. He worked with other supporters of abolition, such as: –Thomas Clarkson- Olaudah Equiano –Granville Sharp- Charles James Fox In 1807, Parliament finally agreed to abolish the Slave Trade in the West Indies.

© HarperCollins Publishers 2010 Significance Why was Wilberforce important in ending the Slave Trade in 1807? After 1807, slavery continued to exist in many parts of the world and within the British Empire. Wilberforce did not support the immediate freeing of all slaves. He believed that with the abolition of the Slave Trade, slavery would disappear gradually. However, in the mid 1820s he was persuaded to support the abolition of all slaves and all slavery. This campaign was supported by slave revolts in the West Indies. In 1831, a widespread slave revolt occurred in Jamaica. The revolt was crushed. However, the revolt persuaded the British Government, led by Earl Grey, to abolish all slaves and all slavery within the British Empire in 1833.
