In October Lyons became premier and treasurer and held both posts until He was a cautious premier and state treasurer, who brought the budget from deficit to surplus through application of financial orthodoxy.
Lyons rejected suggestions he stand at the federal election. He was immediately brought into cabinet as Postmaster-General. He was reportedly disappointed not to be made treasurer 21 , given his experience, but Scullin preferred Theodore, who was also a former premier and sta te treasurer.
When Theodore stepped down due to corruption charges dating back to his time as Queensland premier, Scullin took over as treasurer with Lyons as assistant treasurer.
In August Scullin left for the Imperial Conference in London for over four months, leaving Fenton as acting prime minister and Lyons as acting treasurer from 25 August to 10 January But it did not overcome his fiscal orthodoxy.

The Commonwealth Bank also played an important role. Both men had been members of the group of Melbourne identities who had been involved in persuading Lyons to leave the Labor party. Lyons was a lonely man as prime minister, cut off from his former Labor colleagues and lacking a strong affinity with many of his former opponents who were now his UAP colleagues.
