1834 Report in United Kingdom

The 1834 Report and the 1834 Report

In this issue about the 1834 report, the book “English Poor Law Policy” [1] reads as follows: The proposals of the Commissioners of 1834 were either formal “recommendations,” exceptionally displayed in prominent type, or suggestions scattered among the pages which purport to summarise the evidence. For instance, the famous “principle” that the situation of the pauper should not be made “really or apparently so eligible as the situation of the independent labourer of the lowest class” is not a “recommendation,” but occurs only as an assertion in the course of an argument. We have therefore included, in the following statement of “the principles of 1834,” all dogmatic assertions of this nature, as well as the formal recommendations.
