To learn more about the history of the welfare state in Britain, the origin, evolution, and the downfall of this state are the major points which are suggested for discussion in the current dissertation . Moreover, the debate will include a variety of upheavals and struggles for survival under the poor-law system which emerged in the Elizabethan era and continued till the modern era. There will be also a focus on the most significant political, economic and social transformations in the United Kingdom during and after the two world-wars.

Mrs. Thatcher, who promised a better future for the British society, referred the decline to the inefficiency of the Labour leadership
