As the principal British delegate to the disarmament conference at
Geneva (1926-27), Cecil disagreed with the instructions given him and
resigned from Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin's government. During the
1930s he unsuccessfully argued for League measures against aggression
by Japan in Manchuria and by Italy in Ethiopia. He was one of the few
in Parliament to vote against the concessions made to Nazi Germany at
Munich in 1938.
