The house of lords

If a bill was introduced in the house of commons it will pass to the house of lords where it goes through the same five stages.

The House of Lords and the House of Commons together form Parliament. The House of Lords is the second chamber of UK Parliament and shares the task of making laws. The House of Lords checks and challenges the work of the government.

If the House of Lords makes any amendments to a Bill then it will be returned to the House of Commons for those amendments to be considered.  The basis for this is that the House of Commons consists of elected MP's.

If a Bill started in the House of Lords then it will be passed to the House of Commons.
