Task
Case Study 2 - What kind of police force did Sir Robert Peel set up in 1829?
 

Sir Robert Peel

Prepare to "hot-seat" Sir Robert Peel about the setting up of the Metropolitan Police. One member of the class prepares to act as Sir Robert, the others prepare questions. Possible topics:
-Why does London need a new police force?
-Why is central government setting it up?
-What kind of police force does he want?
-What kind of people does he want to join?
Not all the questions need be friendly. What does he say to those who oppose the new police for London (see above for their motives)?
