Sending notice of receipt of a committee resolution, and agreeing to present the committee report to the King. Joseph Hume (1777 -1855). Scottish doctor and Radical MP.
In 1818 Hume entered the House of Commons for a second time, and made acquaintance with James Mill and the philosophical reformers of the school of Jeremy Bentham. He joined with Francis Place, of Westminster, and other philanthropists, to help improve the condition of the working classes, labouring especially to establish schools for them on the Lancastrian system, and forming savings banks.
Very Good. Item #4474
