He lost his seat at Sheffield at the 1922 general election.[5] He tried unsuccessfully to get back into the House of Commons in 1923 at Pudsey and Otley in the West Riding of Yorkshire.[6] He did however return to Parliament at the 1929 general election as Liberal MP for the Cornish seat of Penryn and Falmouth. He was once again briefly Paymaster-General from September to November 1931 under Ramsay MacDonald. He stood down from parliament at the 1931 general election.[7]
