The Corn-Laws, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The Corn-Laws, 1845. Creator: Unknown

The Corn-Laws, 1845. Descriptive History of the Laws relative to the Importation and Exportation of Corn'. Article discussing the the Corn Laws, tariffs and other trade restrictions on imported food and grain enforced in the United Kingdom between 1815 and 1846. The word corn denotes all cereal grains, including wheat, oats and barley. The laws were designed to keep grain prices high to favour domestic producers, and to block the import of cheap grain, initially by simply forbidding importation below a set price, and later by imposing steep import duties, making it too expensive to import grain from abroad, even when food supplies were short. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
