The House of Lords (commonly referred to as "the Lords" and also known as House of Peers for ceremonial purposes) is the upper house of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, the United Kingdom's national legislature. Parliament comprises the Sovereign, the House of Commons (which is the lower house of Parliament and referred to as "the Commons"), and the Lords. The Lords currently possess no governmental power whatsoever except to delay a bill passed by the Commons. The House of Lords, like the House of Commons, assembles in the Palace of Westminster. - Source: Wikipedia
