The House of Commons is more important as it governs the country. The members of the House of Commons are elected by secret ballot. They belong to different political parties. The main parties are the Conservative Party and the Labour Party. The chief executive is the Prime minister. He heads the Government but is not the Head of State.

Great Britain is a monarchy and the Head of State is a monarch whose power is limited by Parliament. The Prime Minister is usually the leader of the Party that has a majority in the House of Commons. Each new Prime Minister can make change in his cabinet, appoint new ministers and make other changes. The Prime Minister takes policy decisions with the agreement of his ministers.

He often holds Cabinet Meetings at his official residence at No 10 Downing Street which is very near the Hoses of Parliament in Westminster. The power of the Cabinet is controlled by Parliament. There are two chambers in the British Parliament and they are called Houses - the House of Lords and the House of Commons. In the House of Lords one can see the throne on which the Queen sits when she opens Parliament.

One can also see the woolsack on which the Lord Chancellor sits. The fact is that for hundred of years wool had been known as one of the most important exports of Great Britain. The House of Commons does not look as splendid as the House of Lords with its beautiful red benches. Each Chamber has galleries. Seats in the galleries are reserved for the use of the public. In the language of the Parliament they are called "strangers." The Stranger's gallery is in the House of Commons.

The Speaker sits on the green chair given to the Commons of Australia. On the Speaker's chair there is a switch that puts on the light in the Clock Tower above "Big Ben" to tell Londoners that Parliament is in session. The Prime Minister's seat is on the Government front bench which is on the Speaker's right. On the Speaker's left one can see the Opposition front bench. 4: , , ... - -.
