Title: Report from Select Committee on Labouring Poor (Allotments of Land)
Description: London, House of Commons. 1843. viii + 169pp. Folio. Rebound in card covers. British Parliamentary Paper. HC 402. The committee recommended the allocation of waste lands around cities as allotments for the use of the poor. "The allotment system appears to be the natural remedy for one of the detrimental changes in the condition of the labouring classes of this country with the lapse of years has wrought, by gradually shutting them out from all personal and direct interest in the produce of the soil, and throwing them for subsistence wholly and exclusively upon wages". A very clean copy.
