In May 1935, Todd resigned the whip of the National Government, along with Frederick Wolfe Astbury, Joseph Nall, Linton Thorp and Katharine Stewart-Murray, Duchess of Atholl, as they claimed that some aspects of government policy were too close to socialism, and were unhappy with government policy on India. However, Todd continued to identify with the Conservative Party, and took the whip again in September, to show support for the Government during the Abyssinia Crisis.
