When Asquith became Prime Minister in 1908, David Lloyd George succeeded him as Chancellor of the Exchequer. As Chancellor, Lloyd George introduced the 'People's Budget' of 1909 which precipitated a consitutional crisis. During the first of two General Elections held in 1910 Lloyd George travelled the country to campaign for local Liberal candidates.
