This House Would pay reparations for the Atlantic slave trade.
The Atlantic slave trade involved the transportation by Western European slave traders of enslaved African people, mainly to the Americas.
For the purposes of this debate, reparations for slavery refer to payments made by the governments of powers that benefitted from slavery (eg the UK, the USA, France, Spain, etc.) to the descendants of slaves (for example in the Americas) and countries where slaves were taken from (ie African states).
