At the 1924 general election, he was elected to the House of Commons as Member of Parliament (MP) for South Molton in Devon, defeating the long-serving Liberal MP, George Lambert, who had held the seat since 1891. Lambert regained the seat at the next contest, the 1929 general election, and went on to represent South Molton until he retired from the Commons at the 1945 general election.
He never held ministerial office, but was a Conservative whip for many years, and in Winston Churchill's 1951-55 government, he was the government's deputy chief whip, with the formal title of Treasurer of the Household.
