House of Commons


The Eighteenth Century saw the House of Commons consolidate its power within the British Constitution. This was partly due to the fact that the new Hanoverian Kings relied on the institution to give them increased legitimacy. The Century also saw a hardening of the political groupings into two clear parties; The Whigs and the Tories.
