The House of Lords originated in the 14th century and has been in almost continuous existence since. The House of Lords (the "Upper House") was once more powerful than the elected House of Commons (the "Lower House"). Under the Parliament Act 1911, most legislation passed by the House of Commons can be delayed, but cannot be rejected, by the House of Lords.
