Date1896
DescriptionLetter written from Highbury, Birmingham dated 13 December and marked 'Private'. Chamberlain discusses legislation concerning employer's liability and worker's compensation. He agrees with Asquith that the primary aim is to 'prevent negligences' but argues that financial penalties will not guarantee care as employers can have insurance, and therefore breaches must result in imprisonment.
