The points below outline some of these reasons: 1.In 1832, the Great Reform Act was passed, which gave more people the right to vote. However, the working classes were still largely excluded from voting. 2.Many people supported the Chartists and wanted the vote extended to people over 21. 3.Chartists wanted an end to property qualification for parliament, which meant Members of Parliament (MPs) had to be from wealthy backgrounds. 4.Many argued that MPs should be paid to allow people from all classes to stand as MPs. 5.The Chartist movement began in 1836 in the middle of an economic recession. 6.In 1842, an industrial depression struck the North of England and mill owners had to reduce their work force.
