Provision applicable where holder of major office is appointed to another major office.

31.—(1) Where a person who is the holder of a major office (in this sub-section referred to as the first office) is appointed with his consent to another major office, such person shall thereupon cease to hold the first office unless before such appointment the appropriate Minister in relation to the first office consented to such person continuing to hold the first office in the event of his being appointed to such other major office.
