In 1867, with the Second Reform Act under the Prime Minister-ship of Benjamin Disraeli under Queen Victoria. This act also began the practice of the "fancy franchise," which lasted until 1948. The fancy franchise enabled some individuals, those with a business and residency in separate constituencies to vote in each area. However, because most individuals who owned business were in the upper social classes, this limited the effectiveness of the voting working class.
