#QueenVictoria​ was born #OnThisDay in 1819. She ascended to the throne 1837 and reigned until her death 1901. Her reign of 63 years and seven months is known as the Victorian era. It was a period of great industrial, cultural, political, scientific, and military change within the #UnitedKingdom, and was marked by a great expansion of the #BritishEmpire. She was succeeded by her son #EdwardVII​.

It says prison safety is a matter that 'cannot wait', noting 2,690 assaults against staff in the six months to December 2015, an increase of 18%, and that there are 7,000 fewer officers than in 2010.

Charles Watson-Wentworth, 2nd Marquess of Rockingham​ was born #OnThisDay in 1730. He was #PrimeMinister from 1765 to 1766 and in 1782. A major piece of legislation passed during his time in politics was The Catholic Relief Act 1778. Introduced to #Parliament by Sir George Saville, it dismantled some of the penal laws aimed at Roman Catholics. It enabled them to own land, inherit property and join the army.
