Background and education
Hayward was elected as Member of Parliament (MP) for South East Durham at the January 1910 general election, and held the seat until the constituency was abolished at the 1918 general election. He then stood for the new Seaham constituency in County Durham, as a Liberal candidate; he had been issued with the "coalition coupon", but repudiated it. Nonetheless, the Conservative Party did not field a candidate in Seaham, and Hayward won the seat with a comfortable 17% majority over his Labour Party opponent. However, at the 1922 general election, the Conservatives did field a candidate. Hayward was pushed into a poor third place with only 15.5% of the votes, and Labour's Sidney Webb took the seat with nearly 60% of the votes.
