House of Lords & House of Commons -SimilaritiesWatch
Both have presiding officers elected from their number, but the Lord Speaker is considerably less powerful.
Both sides treat legislation similarly - a five-stage process (First/Second Reading/Committee/Report/Third Reading). However the Committee Stage in the Lords tends to be on the Floor, while the Commons uses actual committees.
Questions - Members of both can submit Questions to the Government, although the Lords currently has no cabinet ministers apart from the Leader of the House. Also Questions in both Houses have a different layout - the Commons normally lots of quick-firing questions, while the Lords normally has fewer questions but members discuss them for longer.
Committees - Commons committees are generally arranged to mirror Government departments. Lords committees are cross-cutting and holistic.
Hi, I was trying to find the similarities between the HoC and HoL but it is quite hard! All I can think of is they both deal with bills and they play a part in parliament and the politics system. Help? Thanks!
Each house can draft legislation known as a private members bill with a similar bill process in the contrary to EVEL, and the scrutiny is done by the whole House of Lords,
