In 1911, he entered municipal politics by being elected as a Liberal Unionist to the Birmingham City Council. Four years later, he became the Lord Mayor of Birmingham. In 1919, he was elected as an MP for the first time. Within four years, Chamberlain became the Minister of Health under Prime Minister Bonar Law, and then Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin.
