Punch,  58 (1870), 232–33.

Punch's Essence of Parliament



Regular Feature, Proceedings, Drollery


Hunting, Cruelty, Nutrition, Adulteration, Government, Politics

    Notes the debate over the abolition of the game laws and the withdrawal of the adulteration of food bill. On the latter issue, Punch wonders why 'artisans do not take it up' because it 'affects them almost exclusively', and notes that Lord Eustace B H G Cecil and other statesmen 'adduced cases' of adulteration that would 'almost make the imperturbable Mr. Punch indignant' (232).
