The report compiled by the 1832 commission of enquiry displays its strong belief that the able bodied poor were and had to be put in their 'proper position' as the reform of the poor law was based on the commissions findings this could suggest that they agree with the interpretation that main aim of the poor law administration after 1834 was to deter the able-bodied from seeking poor relief.
