The fall of the Lloyd George coalition

2022 marks the centenary of the departure from office of the last Liberal to hold the post of Prime Minister; on 19 October 1922 David Lloyd George resigned after six years as premier. His fall followed the decision of Conservative MPs, meeting in the Carlton Club earlier that day, to end the post-war coalition.

Discuss why the Lloyd George coalition fell with Lord Lexden (official historian of the Conservative Party) and Dr Matthew Johnson (Associate Professor of Modern British History, University of Durham). Chair: Baroness Barker.
