He returned to the United Kingdom from India in 1872, and in the following year was elected to the London School Board, as one of the representatives for Westminster. He served a single three-year term, choosing not to stand for re-election in 1876.

He subsequently chaired the Napier Commission (the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Condition of Crofters and Cottars in the Highlands and Islands) of 1883-1884.

He died in Italy in 1898.
