From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sydney Arnold, 1st Baron Arnold (13 January 1878 – 3 August 1945) was a British Liberal Party politician who later joined the Labour Party and served as a government minister.

Educated at Manchester Grammar School, he was elected in 1912 as Member of Parliament for Holmfirth in what was then the West Riding of Yorkshire at a by-election following the resignation of the long-serving Liberal MP Henry Wilson. When that constituency was abolished for the 1918 general election, he was elected for the new Penistone constituency. He resigned that seat in 1921, and subsequently joined the Labour Party.

He was ennobled in 1924 as Baron Arnold, and served as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies in Ramsay MacDonald's short-lived 1924 Labour Government, and as Paymaster-General from 1929 to 6 March 1931 in Ramsay MacDonald's second government.
