I know Brown is cutting left, right and Chelsea but?

Apropos of the military coup, does anybody know why there are only 3 Chiltern Hundreds? With only 3 and Northstead Manor and 650 MPs, it's going to take us a hell of a lot longer if we don't resort to ball.

They are those of Crown
Steward and Bailiff of the three Chiltern Hundreds of Stoke, Desborough and Burnham, and of
the Manor of Northstead. These offices have been retained as nominal offices of profit solely to
meet the requirements of the House of Commons Disqualification Act 1975.
For avoiding doubt, I assume that "Hundreds" actually means "a hundred acres" or something similar.
