ABSTRACT
The article focuses on John Sankey's political development after the investigation of the coal mining industry in 1919 and also on his relations with the Labour Party both in and out of government in Great Britain. It explores the change in Sankey's political awareness which made him the obvious choice as Labour's Lord Chancellor in 1929. The author also examines his role in the highly charged events of 1931 and assesses the factors which governed his conduct after the critical episode in Labor history.
