What did people think of the new Poor Law? In 1834 a new Poor Law was introduced. The new Poor Law ensured that the poor were housed in workhouses, clothed and fed. However, not all Victorians shared this point of view. Some people spoke out against the new Poor Law, calling the workhouses ‘Prisons for the Poor’. The poor themselves hated and feared the threat of the workhouse so much that there were riots in northern towns.

The 1919 race riots were the first time many people became aware of the presence of black and minority ethnic people living in Britain, including those who had lived and worked here for many years and served in the war.
