Vagrancy Act 1824 in English
The Vagrancy Act 1824 (5 Geo. 4. c. 83) is an Act of Parliament of the United Kingdom. It was introduced in 1824 as a measure to deal with specific problems in England following the Napoleonic Wars. The large numbers of soldiers who arrived, and who were discharged on to the streets with no job and no accommodation, were joined by a massive influx of economic migrants from Ireland and Scotland who traveled to England, and especially London, in search of work. The ancient pass laws were ineffective in dealing with the increased numbers of homeless and penniless urban poor. The Vagrancy Act was introduced as a method of dealing with a specific early 19th-century problem. Punishment for the wide definition of vagrancy (including prostitution) was up to one month hard labour.
