He was awarded the Territorial Decoration TD in 1919.[9] He was re-promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel in 1924 (re-gaining his former seniority),[10] commanding the unit for a period up to 1928.[11] He was given a brevet (military) promotion to Colonel in 1927.[12] In 1931 he was made Honorary Colonel of the 50th (Northumbrian) Divisional Train in the Royal Army Service Corps.[13]

He was elected at the 1918 general election Member of Parliament (MP) for Hull North West,[14] and held the seat until his defeat in the Labour Party landslide at the 1945 election.[15][16][17][18][19][20] He served under Ramsay Macdonald as a Lord of the Treasury from 1931 to 1935[21][22] and as Vice-Chamberlain of the Household in 1935,[23] under Stanley Baldwin as Vice-Chamberlain of the Household in 1935 and as Comptroller of the Household from 1935 to 1937[24][25][26] and under Neville Chamberlain as Treasurer of the Household in 1937.[27]
