Naturally this episode also aroused memories of his treatment of strikers only the year before, reaffirming his growing reputation as an authoritarian. The most significant of his reforms were to create a naval war staff at the Admiralty to parallel that of the War Office and to convert all Royal Navy vessels from coal to oil.

What he did have was a commitment to social reform. Now that he was Chancellor, he aimed to make the Treasury ‘an active instrument of Government social policy’6 by increasing spending on pensions, social benefits and housing. The main domestic legislation of Baldwin’s government was in social reform, taking up some of the themes of the pre-war Liberal administrations. Churchill felt comfortable financing social reform, so that – unusually – the relationship between the Treasury and Neville Chamberlain’s Ministry of Health was a cooperative one.

The emphasis on social policy and reform was to remain with Lloyd George as a constant aim. His rewriting of the Liberal Party’s political programme in the 1920s demonstrates his continued agitation for improved standards of living, housing and employment for the working classes; the titles of the so-called ‘coloured books’ reveal the importance of these concerns to him – The Land and the Nation of 1925 and We Can Conquer Unemployment of 1929, for example. For Churchill, the same cannot quite be said.
