716. Effects of disqualification and provision for relief.

If a person disqualified by reason of office or service1 for membership of the House of Commons, or for membership for a particular constituency, is elected as a member, his election is void2; and if a member of the House of Commons thus becomes disqualified either for membership of the House or for membership for the constituency for which he sits, his seat must be vacated3. However, in either case, the House may direct, by order, that the effects of the disqualification or alleged disqualification are to be disregarded
