The disclaimer of a peerage by any person under the Peerage Act 1963 is irrevocable1. From the date on which the instrument of disclaimer is delivered the disclaimer operates to divest that person (and, if he is married, his wife) of all right or interest to or in the peerage, and all attached titles, rights, offices, privileges and precedence2. The disclaimer also operates to relieve the person of all obligations and disabilities of the peerage3. The disclaimer does not, however, accelerate the succession to that peerage nor does it affect its devolution on his death
