Comparing the Commons And the Lords


Comparing The Commons And The Lords 

  • Commons only one that can approve financial matters, Budget in 2017 by Phillip Hammond 
  • However both can debate and vote on legislation, both debated on Syria in 2015
  • Commons can completely veto certain legislation. Salsibury convention 
  • However Lords can block legislation for up to a year if it wants, reform of the lords was blocked
  • Commons are the only ones that can dismiss a government by a vote of no confidence, Blair
  • However the Lords can still call a government to account if its wrong, Tampon Tax being blocked 
  • Lords can ammend or change legislation as it wishes, ammending the brexit bill 
  • However commons has the final approval, Brexit was voted on by the commons
