Hadn't heard about the Bristol Riots before, but using the limited knowledge I have, I would guess it did play a part as in general the British Governments of the 19th century had attitudes that were laissez-faire in the extreme.

Also I have a feeling that Earl Grey, the Prime Minister at the time, was a Whig, and the previous Prime Minister I don't think was. A change in ethos might well have played a part too.

All educated guesswork though and I can't answer the question with any great deal of confidence. Sorry.
