THE CHILTERN HUNDREDS

SYNOPSIS: 

 

Young viscount Pym manages to to get an army leave on the pretense of running for the Conservatives in the next local election. His only aim in fact is to marry June, a rich American heiress, before she returns to America.

 

Due to unexpected circumstances he is driven to take part in the election campaign but loses the vote. Humiliated, Tony must win June Back, so why not stand again, as a... Socialist this time!? 

 


Bailiff of the Chiltern Hundreds is now used

as a procedural device to effect resignation

from the House of Commons,

as British MPs are not permitted

simply to resign their seat.
