At the beginning of the nineteenth century children formed a large part of the working population of Great Britain. They started work early in their lives and they worked long hours for unscrupulous employers or masters. The Health and Morals of Apprentices Act of 1802 was introduced by Robert Peel in an attempt at reducing apprentice working hours to 12 h per day and improving the conditions of their employment. The Factories Act of 1833 restricted the working week for children aged 13–18 years to 69 h in any working week.
