In 1884 Crewe-Milnes was adopted as a Liberal candidate for Barnsley, but he never contested the seat as the death of his father in 1885 meant he entered the House of Lords as Baron Houghton. He held a succession of high political offices, including Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Colonial Secretary and Secretary for India. As Liberal leader in the House of Lords from 1908, he played an important role in securing passage of the Parliament Act of 1911, which deprived the Lords of its veto. Baron Houghton maintained a leading role in the education sector, serving as chairman of the Governing Body of Imperial College London, President of the Board of Education and chancellor of Sheffield University.
