The Corn Laws were measures in force in the United Kingdom between 1815 and 1846. The laws were supported by Conservative landowners and opposed by Whig industrialists and workers. The Anti-Corn Law League was responsible for turning public and elite opinion against the laws with its leading advocate being Richard Cobden.
