Act of 1834 and Its Amendments in United Kingdom

The Act of 1834 and its Amendments

In this issue about the act of 1834 and its amendments, the book “English Poor Law Policy” [1] reads as follows: The marked feature of this period is the paucity of statutory enactment affecting relief. Only four statutes contain any provisions on the subject (apart from administrative detail), and these provisions are almost entirely mere enabling clauses, permitting the Central Authority to make such rules as it thinks fit, subject to a few specified exceptions. We can extract from these exiguous provisions nothing in the nature of a policy imposed by Parliament on the Central Authority. As already mentioned, it was assumed that the Central Authority would put into execution the proposals of the Report of 1834. Parliament contented itself with giving the Central Authority wide powers and almost unfettered discretion in the use of them.
