Retirement in United Kingdom

Retirement from a partnership at will

Manor of Northstead and the Chiltern Hundreds Meaning, as used in the UK Parliament

The Steward and Bailiffs of the Chiltern Hundreds and of the Manor of Northstead were positions traditionally paid for by the Crown. In modern times they are merely formal titles and are applied for when an Member of Parliament needs to disqualify themselves from the Commons.

An elected Member of Parliament has no right to resign: unless they die or are expelled they must therefore become disqualified if they wish to retire before the end of a Parliament. Taking on a paid office of the Crown immediately bars a person from being an Member of Parliament.
