Summary
MP for Woolwich West since 1918, Kingsley Wood's ministerial career took him into the government and then the Cabinet over the next nineteen years. Wood had helped initiate the Ministry of Health after the First World War and was there in 1925-1929 undertaking a major programme of social reform as Neville Chamberlain's no.2. The Government's Civil Commissioner in Newcastle and the north-east during the 1926 General Strike, he was subsequently Postmaster-General 1931-1935. His performance in that post, when he modernised the Post Office, particularly telephones, and oversaw BBC Charter renewal, led the Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald to bring him into the Cabinet in 1933. He remained in the Cabinet for the rest of his career
