About the House of Commons 




















The House of Commons is the democratically elected house of the UK Parliament, responsible for making laws and checking the work of Government.


Parliament is an essential part of UK politics. Its main roles are examining and challenging the work of the government, debating and passing all laws and enabling the Government to raise taxes. 


Law making along with supporting the work of various parliamentary committees are critical aspects of the work of the House of Commons.  The Internship Programme will provide successful candidates with experience in these highly challenging and unique areas of work.
