Used to be treason to state the oath you take when you join the Privy Council (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Privy_Council_of_England **), and a fair few MPs are in the modern one, like Corbyn who was made a privy councillor in 2015 and Boris Johnson made in 2016 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Privy_Counsellors_(1952%E2%80%93present))
