On 14 January 1836 the Minister of Finance, Georges Humann, presented the draft budget for 1837 to the Chamber of Deputies. This included a proposal for conversion of debt that had not been discussed with his cabinet colleagues. The proposal caused an unexpected storm of controversy, and Humann was forced to resign on 18 January 1836. The issue led to a public debate, followed by the collective resignation of the cabinet. The cabinet was replaced on 22 February 1836 by the First cabinet of Adolphe Thiers.
