A bit wonky and disconnected, but a good starting point on an fascinating subject.

I've read the second edition of this useful book which ends with the legislation of the first Labour government but begins with the factory legislation, the new Poor Law of 1832, legislation on worker's housing and takes in the legislation of the last Liberal government.
