Harrogate Agenda (Separation of Powers)

Is it not time to restore the clause that was originally in section III of the Act of Settlement 1700. (An Act for the further Limitation of the Crown and better securing the Rights and Liberties of the Subject) http://www.legislation.gov.uk/aep/Will3/12-13/2/introduction

"That no person who has an office or place of profit under the King, or receives a pension from the Crown, shall be capable of serving as a member of the House of Commons"

That would mean that any serving MP who becomes a minister of the Crown must resign his/her seat and a by-election held. This would enforce a real separation of government from Legislature.

This provision is often used as an escape device by MPs wishing to quit Parliament, by applying for office of profit, e.g.Crown Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead or of the Chiltern Hundreds
