    Members of the Armed Forces are currently banned from being MPs under the House of Commons Disqualification Act 1975, a piece of legislation that updated the earlier 1957 Act of the same name.

    From reading this Commons Library Briefing Document, it would appear that it was the 1957 Act that introduced this?
