Short Note This is a short note

Robert Peel issues the Tamworth Manifesto, giving the Tory Party a new raft of policies representing an approach of liberal Conservatism. On behalf of his party he accepts the Reform Act of 1832, which Tory MPs had voted against at the time, and agrees to embrace a programme of more equitable reforms.
