This chapter focuses on Grey's retirement. Although Grey had declared that his retirement meant the end of his public life, he did not retreat into isolation from political affairs. He was prepared to help his old colleagues on occasion. He attended the House of Lords a few times, and spoke on the Irish Corporations Bill on which the Tory majority in the Lords was obstructing the government.
