An abdication necessarily interrupts the normal order, which is precisely why, having rejected any considerations put forward in favour of the Kents over the Yorks, the Parliament asserted itself. Had there been no need to, it would not have.
But, again, I apologise that I cannot give you the authority for this, because my books are packed.
And, no, it would not have required a new Act of Settlement: had the Parliament settled on Kent that provision in the Abdication Act would have sufficed.
