Majority seats by government in the United Kingdom (UK) 1918-2015 This statistic shows the number of majority seats held by governments formed following general elections in the United Kingdom (UK) from 1918 to 2015. Apart from the major party coalition here referred to as the National government, the single party government with the largest seat majority was the Conservative led government in 1924, which had a majority of 210 seats in parliament. The last three governments in this time period have all had majority seats below 100 in number, with the government formed after the 2015 elections having 11 majority seats. During this time period, there were three incidences recorded where a formed government did not hold a seat majority in the parliament, the affected governments were all formed by the Labour Party in 1923, 1929 and 1974. However, the latter incident of a minority government was followed by new general elections later in the same year.
