At the 1922 election, he stood unsuccessfully in the Conservative-held Hexham constituency in Northumberland, coming third with 24% of the votes.

Shield did not stand again until 1929, when he was elected as Member of Parliament for the Wansbeck constituency at a by-election on 13th February, and returned at the 1929 election.

He was defeated at the 1931 election by the Conservative candidate Bernard Cruddas, and did not stand again.
