The House of Commons was one of the two houses of England's Houses of Parliament.

The Eleven-Day Empire was governed from the chamber of the House of Commons. (PROSE: Interference) There were 630 seats, most of them were filled by the Fathers and Mothers, who each had a right to a seat because of their rank. As recruits from the Great Houses were automatically granted the title of Mother or Father, many who sat in the Parliament were children of the Great Houses rather than members of the lesser species; many argued that this was a form of class prejudice, but members of the Houses had a biological advantage in the techniques of time control. (PROSE]: The Book of the War)

By tradition, the speaker's chair was always empty, waiting for Grandfather Paradox's return; (PROSE: Interference - Book One) in his stead, one of the Godfathers or Godmothers performed the duty of Acting Speaker in the House. (PROSE: The Book of the War) Godfather Morlock was Acting Speaker during the destruction of the Eleven-Day Empire, (AUDIO: The Shadow Play) and he occasionally sat in the speaker's chair to speak to the members of the Faction. (PROSE: The Story of the Peace)

Despite having an operating Parliament, the Empire was not a democracy; all members belonged to the same party or faction. (PROSE: The Book of the War)
