Second Derby ministry
The Second Derby Ministry governed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from February 1858 until June 1859.
After the collapse of Lord Palmerston's first government, the Tory leader Lord Derby again formed a minority government, with Benjamin Disraeli as Chancellor of the Exchequer. The government oversaw the establishment of Crown rule in India, but was still not strong enough to retain power, falling in June 1859. Lord Palmerston then returned, forming his second ministry.
