  • Christopher Addison, 1st Viscount Addison KG PC FRCS (19 June 1869 – 11 December 1951) was a British medical doctor and politician. By turns a Liberal and a Labourite, he served as Minister of Munitions during the First World War, and was later Minister of Health under David Lloyd George and Leader of the House of Lords under Clement Attlee. He was a prominent anatomist, and perhaps the most eminent doctor ever to enter the Commons. He was a leader in issues of health, wartime munitions, housing and agriculture. Although not highly visible, he played a major role in the postwar governments that followed both world wars. Addison worked hard to promote the National Insurance scheme in 1911. Lloyd George made him the first Minister of Health during the wartime coalition, and Addison started up the first programme of publicly-funded local authority housing schemes with his Housing Act of 1919. He and Lloyd George fell out and he joined the Labour Party, (en)
