David Lloyd George delivered his maiden speech in the House of Commons on 13 June 1890. His speech was regarding the Local Taxation (Customs and Excise) Duties Bill and he spoke on the theme of temperance and licensing laws.
During his early years in Parliament, Lloyd George mainly spoke on Welsh issues, but became known nationally when speaking out against the South African War after 1899. In 1905 he accepted the offer of the post of President of the Board of Trade in the new Liberal cabinet.
