Bicameral System in United Kingdom

Bicameral system Meaning, as used in the UK Parliament

Bicameral literally means ‘two-Chamber’. A bicameral parliament is one that contains two separate assemblies who must both agree when new laws are made. The UK Parliament is bicameral because both the House of Commons and the House of Lords are involved in making legislation.

Parliaments with only one Chamber are described as unicameral.
