How British Parliament Actually Works

Legislation Exceptions

If the House of Lords votes down a bill, the House of Commons can pass a bill in two successive years it becomes law without the House of Lords’ approval.

Bills regarding money, raising taxes or authorizing government expenditures, are not opposed in the House of Lords and may only be delayed for a month.
