Disqualification by office or service is governed entirely by the House of Commons Disqualification Act 1975, a re-enactment (with subsequent amendments) of the House of Commons Disqualification Act 1957, whose provisions replaced and repealed the previous indeterminate test of the holding of an office of profit under or from the Crown1. The 1957 Act also codified for the first time the large number of statutory provisions which attached disqualification to particular offices, and repealed the former enactments2.
Disqualification arises by reference to employment in named branches of the public service or the holding of particular non-ministerial offices
