After the election he supported Winston Churchill's efforts to revive the Conservative/Liberal coalition. He fought the 1924 election as a Constitutionalist and regained his seat from Leif Jones. After the election he took the Conservative whip. In 1929, standing as a Conservative, he lost it once again in to Jones.

Moreing's brother, Adrian Moreing, was also a mining engineer and Member of Parliament.
