Sir Robert Peel, British statesman, was Prime Minister from 1834-1835 and again from 1841-1846. As home secretary in 1829, he secured passage of a bill for Catholic Emancipation (which he had formerly opposed), and established the London police force, whose members were called Bobbies after him. Important in the emerging Conservative Party, Peel hoped that it would favor general reforms. The abandonment of custom duties and repeal (1846) of the Corn Laws during his second prime ministry, however, split the party, forcing his resignation.
