"The special value of the parliamentary reports lies in the picture
they present of a changing community during times of technical
innovations and trade depressions. The reports on the Corn Laws
provide this information for the early part of the century and the
Royal Commissions on agricultural interests and depression detail
the situation in their exhaustive inquiries for the later periods.
The employment of women and children for agricultural labour,
agricultural customs in Britain, the allotment system and small
holdings, commons enclosure, the National Land Company, the
state of the agricultural community in Ireland and the crofters
and cottars of Scotland are also fully reported on in these papers."
