Coalition/National Ministries[edit]

Why is the coalition government of 2010-15 referred to as Cameron I, while the various coalition & national governments of the 1930s and 40s are not referred to as whichever instance of MacDonald, Baldwin, Chamberlain, Churchill, etc? P M C 15:37, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

They are called 'national' because that was the specific way in which they were referred to at the time, a product of the National Government (United Kingdom) principle. This is also how they are recorded in Dod's. Much like the Who? Who? Ministry, some ministries have had special names. This does not apply to Cameron's first. RGloucester 00:58, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
