SITTINGS AND PROCEDURE

The room in which the house of commons now sits is constructed on the same general lines as the old chapel of St. Stephen, and, like it, does not provide sitting accommodation for anything like the total number of members. In the body of the house there are less than 350 seats for the 670 members. But, for discomfort in crowding, there is compensation in ease of hearing. Any one can make himself heard without straining his voice, and business debates are therefore far more practicable than in the spacious chamber allotted to the house of representatives at Washington. The accident that the house of commons sits in a narrow room, with benches facing each other, and not, like most continental legislatures, in a semicircular space, with seats arranged like those of a theatre, makes for the two-party system and against groups shading into each other. In the house of lords there are cross benches, but there are none in the house of commons.
So much must suffice for the place of sitting. In dealing with the time of sittings we must in the first place distinguish between a parliament, a session, and a sitting.
A new parliament is called together by means of writs of summons, which are sent out from the crown office, in pursuance of a royal proclamation and order in council, and which summon peers, direct the election of members of the house of commons, and fix the day on which the parliament is to
