The Parliament of the Kingdom of England has been unicameral since 1907. Prior to that the parliament was divided between the upper house, the House of Lords, and the lower house, the House of Commons.
Parliamentary general elections are held every three years, unless dissolved earlier by the Queen on the request of the Prime Minister.
