The Locarno Pact, concluded on Chamberlain's 62nd birthday (Oct. 16,
1925) by Great Britain, France, Italy, Belgium, and Germany, was the
high point of his foreign secretaryship; he lost popularity after the
failure of the Geneva Conference on naval limitations (August 1927)
and the abortive and needlessly secret Anglo-French disarmament negotiations
(July 1928). He left office with Stanley Baldwin's second ministry in
June 1929, returned briefly (August-October 1931) as first lord of the
admiralty, and then passed the rest of his life as an elder statesman.
