Politics, Shipping, and the Repeal of the Navigation Laws

Voorkant
Manchester University Press, 1990 - 209 pagina's
The repeal of the Navigation Laws in 1849 brought to an end two centuries of legislative protection for British shipping, setting a pattern in the maritime sphere which has lasted until the present day. The end of the laws has proved a less compelling political event than the abolition of the Corn Laws, to which it has sometimes been seen as a mere postscript; and confusion as to how much protection the Navigation Laws provided in the 1840s has led some to conclude that repeal had little practical significance.
