In the 1935 general election held that autumn MacDonald narrowly lost his seat but after some discussion Baldwin decided to retain him in government, albeit moving him to the post of Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs in a direct swap with James Henry Thomas who had created problems with some Dominion governments.
In October the new Dominions Secretary, Lord Stanley, died and MacDonald was appointed to succeed him in addition to the Colonies, as the post was in a sensitive period and needed an experienced pair of hands.
It has been suggested that this course of action was taken to ensure that MacDonald and Chamberlain were concerned to ensure that Palestine did not develop into a situation similar to that of Ireland where two evenly matched communities engaged in bitter ethnic conflict.

 Reference re: Seabed and subsoil of the continental shelf
The view of the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs was that supervisory control by the Dominions Office was a constitutional necessity.
For example, in Imperial legislation which referred to the Dominions the formula used was to define Dominion as "a Dominion within the meaning of the Statute of Westminster, 1931 except Newfoundland", and then deal with Newfoundland separately, treating it in the same manner as colonies.
In cases where the continental shelf extends to the shores of another State, or is shared with an adjacent State, the boundary shall be determined by the United States and the State concerned in accordance with equitable principles.
