Despite receiving almost a million more votes than the previous election and increasing their vote share, the Conservative Party lost 81 seats and their landslide, but retained their working majority.
The Conservative Party won 337 seats (a majority of 25). Andrew Christian, the Leader of the Conservative Party, formed a Conservative-only government, and dismissed Henry Brewer as Deputy Prime Minister. Through deaths, defections and by-elections, the Conservatives' majority was slowly diminished, and they lost it completely on 28 May 1923 through another by-election loss, now only on 325 seats. Christian immediately prorogued the 6th Parliament of Sallia, and dissolved it on 2 June 1923 for a snap election to increase his majority.
