How long can the House of Lords delay a Bill (except a Money Bill)?

< Previous


Next >

Since the introduction of the Parliament Act 1949, the House of Lords can only delay a Bill for up to 1 year. A Money Bill, which contains only financial provisions, can be enacted without the approval of the House of Lords after a delay of just 1 month. The other options either understate or overstate this delay period.

Key Point: The Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949 define the legislative process and the specific limitations on the House of Lords' power to delay legislation, ensuring that the elected House of Commons has the final say.
