722. Grounds on which an MP may be recalled.

A member of Parliament becomes subject to a recall petition process if either the first, second or third recall condition2 has been met in relation to the MP, and the Speaker gives notice of that fact to the petition officer for the MP's constituency1.

The first recall condition is that:


    (1)     the MP has, after becoming an MP, been convicted in the United Kingdom of an offence and sentenced or ordered to be imprisoned or detained2; and


    (2)     the appeal period expires without the conviction, sentence or order having being overturned on appeal
