Yeah: he made the Eden treaty with France in 1786 which was a reciprocal trade agreement that reduced the tariff on British exports to France by 10-15% which was the first step towards freer trade ( this treaty didn't last because of the war with France 1793)
Pitt also introduced the navigation acts in 1786 which protected British shipping from foreign competition

That's okay, and maybe if the question was to do with did he bring about a national revival? Or his policies or something , and you could use these points to say he wasn't successful because Eden treaty relapsed in 1793 because of the war with France x

Omg I hate peel I'm not sure if we need to know but I learnt anyway that the reasons could've been: response to Irish famine ( but this was actually occasion rather than reason, peel used this as an excuse), because of the ACLL, because of the success of the free trade budgets and to protect aristocratic rule because if the elite keep supporting CLs they'll alientate voters and lose power and I'm not I don't think we need to know why Tories lost power 1830 but I think it's cos Wellington divided the party x

erm all I know for companies act is that it was meant to increase business confidence amongst investors because all business had to publish annual prospectuses and be registered because before the companies could have been fake and investors lost money but the act didn't really have an effect, I'm not sure about railways sorry x

Same !

I thought the first 2 questions were good but I'm a little bit worried
Because the second question said did the policies deserve to be called liberal and I talked about the Motivation for them not being liberal not if the policy was liberal ... Do u think this is ok?

How was yours? X
