The Parliament of the United Kingdom [note 1] is the supreme legislative body of the United Kingdom , the Crown dependencies and the British overseas territories. Parliament is bicameral but has three parts, consisting of the sovereign Crown-in-Parliament , the House of Lords , and the House of Commons the primary chamber.

The House of Commons is an elected chamber with elections to single member constituencies held at least every five years under the first-past-the-post system.
