Wellington ministry

The Duke of Wellington, a member of the Tory Party, served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1828 until 1830.

Formation

The Duke of Wellington finally came to power after the abortive attempt at a Canningite-Whig coalition government came to an end with Lord Goderich's resignation in January 1828. The government included several men from the previous administration, but four of the most important, Lords Dudley and Palmerston and Messrs Huskisson and Grant, resigned in May 1828.

Fate

The Duke oversaw the introduction of Catholic Emancipation, but remained resolutely opposed to parliamentary reform, and as a result lost a vote of no confidence on 15 November 1830. The Whigs under Lord Grey then formed the government which was to pass the Great Reform Act.
