The Members of Parliament Retiring Allowances Act is amended to prohibit Members of the Senate and the House of Commons from making pension contributions and accruing pensionable service as a result of a suspension ordered by a majority vote of their peers.  The amendments provide that a Parliamentarian who is suspended cannot contribute to the pension plan, or make elections to increase pensionable service, until permitted to do so by a majority vote of the Senate or the House of Commons.
