The continual complaints in Great Britain and Ireland of the inefficiency and extravagance of the Poor Law System, have been accentuated of late by the labour crisis and want of employment. Criticisms abound and commissions of inquiry have been started. I think the present system might, with great advantage, be replaced by the schemes which I shall submit. However, a brief inquiry into the origin and history of the Poor Law is necessary, before dealing with a remedy.
