Arnold Rowntree becomes MP for York

Arnold Rowntree is elected Liberal MP for York and remains in this position until the general election of December 1918. Although a deeply committed constituency MP, Arnold’s support of Conscientious Objectors during the War is not popular and he loses his seat in the 1918 “khaki election”.
