After David Lloyd George resigned as Prime Minister in 1922 he remained active in political life, devoting his energies to social reforms. He did not become involved in political discussion about the Second World War until 8 May 1940, when he made a speech in the House of Commons attacking Neville Chamberlain's leadership. This played a significant role in forcing Chamberlain's resignation just two days later when Winston Churchill then took up the position of Prime Minister.
Less than a month after Churchill became Prime Minister, he asked Lloyd George to become a member of the war cabinet. This is the letter from Lloyd George to Winston Churchill declining the offer for the present.
