Referencing with Harvard: House of Commons/Lords papers
These revelatory, sharp words are loaded with the violent history of plantation slavery. But they do not define his subject. Subverting this quasi-Homeric scene of father-son recognition, the poem poses a set of tantalising questions. What constitutes kin, community and, more broadly, the great and the remembered?

What part will the House of Lords play this week in preventing a no-deal Brexit. Photo: PA. As a bicameral legislature, parliament has two separate houses: the Commons and the Lords. The latter is designed to provide scrutiny of the work of the government, and share the task of shaping and checking laws. That means they will now have the time to try to get the Benn bill through.
The House of Lords , also known as the House of Peers and domestically usually referred to simply as the Lords , is the upper house of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. Membership is granted by appointment or else by heredity or official function. Like the House of Commons , it meets in the Palace of Westminster. Unlike the elected House of Commons, members of the House of Lords excluding 90 hereditary peers elected among themselves and two peers who are ex officio members are appointed. The Lords Spiritual are 26 bishops in the established Church of England. However, they also include some hereditary peers including four dukes. Membership was once an entitlement of all hereditary peers, other than those in the peerage of Ireland , but under the House of Lords Act , the right to membership was restricted to 92 hereditary peers.
