How about asking yourself what would be the consequences of an ineffective one? That would give you some points.

Ask yourself:
What does a government do, and why does it need to do it effectively?

An effective pariliament would obviously be one that is most ineffective (Re: effective for the political classes and ineffective for everyone else).

Because parliament holds the govt to account; through scrutiny, legislation and the general adversary nature of politics. Contary to popular beleif, this is actually beneficial to the government as it provides it with legitimation. Parliament (in this case, thr HoC), represents the people (and it's actions are answerable to them), so if they agree (however begrudgingly), they are granting consent to what the government do (e.g measures, actions and general legislation)- which is very important for the government! Therefore, the government (which you have to remember is not directly elected), needs an effective parliament in order to scrutinise and asses it, so that when consent is given, the Government is legitimised x x x
