Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information. They appear at the foot of the relevant provision or under the associated heading. Annotations are categorised by annotation type, such as F-notes for textual amendments and I-notes for commencement information (a full list can be found in the Editorial Practice Guide). Each annotation is identified by a sequential reference number. For F-notes, M-notes and X-notes, the number also appears in bold superscript at the relevant location in the text. All annotations contain links to the affecting legislation.

(2)M shall not be a member of the House of Lords at any time after the notice is given and accordingly—
(a)M shall not be entitled to receive writs of summons to attend the House, and
(b)any writ of summons previously issued to M has no further effect.

(a)M shall no longer be excepted from section 1 of the 1999 Act, and
(b)if M counted towards the limit under section 2(2) of the 1999 Act, that limit is reduced by one.

(5)If M is not such a person, M ceases to be disqualified by virtue of M's peerage (or dignity) for—
(a)voting at elections to the House of Commons, or
(b)being, or being elected as, a member of that House.

which was required to be published on any date before the notice is given.

If subsection (3)(a) has applied to M, it does not stop M becoming excepted from section 1 of the House of Lords Act 1999 again by filling a vacancy under section 2 of that Act after the notice is given.
(9)If, after the notice is given, M becomes the person who is to hold the office of Earl Marshal or perform the office of Lord Great Chamberlain, subsection (2) above does not stop M being entitled to receive writs of summons to attend the House of Lords by virtue of the peerage that led to M becoming the person who is to hold or perform the office in question.
