How did the Parliament gain power over time?
Parliament’s Powers Parliament formed two houses, or groups, to govern the country: the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Parliament would eventually control the collection of taxes. As a result, it could limit the power of the English monarchy. Parliament was also eventually able to introduce and pass laws. The king could not declare new laws without Parliament’s approval. Parliament’s power grew slowly. The changes mentioned above took centuries to develop. Wars were even fought over the question of Parliament’s authority. But the legal and constitutional practices of medieval England would be a guide to later political thinkers.
In my own words - The parliament created two houses to govern the country. They were " House of Commons" and the " House of Lords". The parliament was in control of the collection of taxes, and the king could not make new laws with out the parliaments agreement.
