    The Poor Law Commissioners were keen to have further information about the boy, writing to the Dewsbury Union Clerk on 14 July asking: In reference to the case of one of the children, Thomas Townend, I am to request that the Commissioners may be informed what has become of the boy since he was returned to the workhouse, and whether he is. -Parishes were to be grouped together to form Poor Law unions in order to provide relief efficiently-each Poor Law union was to establish a workhouse in which inmates would live in conditions that were worse than those of the poorest independent labourer-Outdoor relief for the able-bodied poor was to be discouraged but, significantly, not abolished.

    The anti-Poor Law agitators were determined to portray the Poor Law Commissioners as inhuman tyrants. Emotional speeches and tales of cruelty, such as those published by George Wythen Baxter in his Book of Bastiles, roused northern workers to fury. In some areas, attempts to put the new system into operation were met with riots.

Thinly researched, replete with illogical passages, and generally lacking anything that makes it a worthy contribution to the field, Karl Ittmann's Work, Gender, and Family in Victorian England, like all of his books, is not worth the paper it is printed on.1/5(1).
