CONSTITUTION OF THE HOUSE

Subject to disqualifications arising from peerage, holding of office, bankruptcy, and conviction of treason or felony, every British subject who is of full age is eligible to the house of commons. A peer of the United Kingdom or of Scotland is not eligible, but a peer of Ireland, unless he be a representative peer, is eligible for any but an Irish seat. For instance, Lord Palmerston was an Irish peer. Where a member of the house of commons is described as a lord, he is either an Irish peer, or, more frequently, a commoner holding a courtesy title as son of a peer.
The evidence of election is the return sent to the crown office by the returning officer at the election. If the validity of an election is disputed, the question is tried and decided by election judges appointed by, and from among members of, the high court. A member must, before sitting or voting as such, except in the election of Speaker, take the oath of allegiance, or make an affirmation to the same effect.
About disqualification by office something more must be said. After the restoration of Charles II, and indeed until the end of the seventeenth century, there was much jealousy of the presence in parliament of persons holding office under the king. It was feared that, through his officers, the king would be able to exercise undue influence over parliamentary proceedings, and an Act was passed which made the holding of all
