I must say that I was sceptical about the 1922 being formed in 1923 having held the view that it was formed in 1922 following a Conservative victory at a by-election in Newport and the following events whereby Conservative MPs voted to leave the then Liberal-Conservative coalition causing Conservative leader Austen Chamberlain to resign.
Chamberlain was replaced by Andrew Bonar Law who won a majority for the Conservatives at the 1922 General Election. The 1922 Committee was then formed by Conservative backbench MPs in April 1923 and named after the year in which the MPs who formed the committee were elected (1922).
The links are confused on the matter. The 1922 Committee was originally a support group for new members elected in the 1922 election and founded by them. It was only in subsequent years that membership was expanded to the full parliamentary party. Timrollpickering (talk) 12:40, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
'The name does not stem from a famous October 1922 meeting in which Conservative MPs successfully demanded that the party withdraw from the coalition government of David Lloyd George.' This does not make sense, and looks like vandalism. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:39, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
