  Parliament Act - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Act was a reaction to the clash between the Liberal government and the House of Lords, culminating in the so-called "People's Budget" of the Chancellor of the Exchequer David Lloyd George in 1909, which proposed the introduction of a land tax based on the ideas of the American tax reformer Henry George.
Since the 1949 Act was passed, doubts had been raised by legal academics as to whether the use of the 1911 Act to pass the 1949 Act, amending the 1911 Act itself, was valid.
After this, the 1949 Act, and the validity of Acts made under it, remained unchallenged until after the Parliament Acts were used to force through the Hunting Act 2004, when the Countryside Alliance raised the question of the validity of the 1949 Act.

An act of parliament may be regarded as a declaration of the legislature, enforcing certain rules of conduct, or defining rights and conferring them upon or withholding them from certain persons or classes of persons.
Originally the collective acts of each session formed but one statute, to which a general title was attached, and for this reason an act of parliament was up to 1892 generally cited as the chapter of a particular statute, e.g.
Now, by the Short Titles Act 1892, it is optional to cite most important acts up to that date by their short titles, either individually or collectively.

 BBC NEWS | UK | Politics | What is the Parliament Act?
The 1911 Act was introduced by the Liberal Prime Minister, Herbert Asquith, after Conservatives defied centuries of parliamentary precedent and used their majority in the Lords to block Lloyd George's "people's Budget" of 1909.
The Act - which was approved by both the Commons and the Lords - restricted the powers of the House of Lords to delay and block legislation.
New restrictions on the powers of the Lords were introduced in the 1949 Parliament Act which reduced the time peers could delay a bill from two years over three parliamentary sessions to one year over two parliamentary sessions.

 Law in a Box Newswire
In fact, there are two Parliament Acts, one of 1911 and the other enacted in 1949, although in reality the second only amends the first by reducing the period for which the House of Lords can delay a Bill from two years o one.
The Parliament Act 1911 derived from a constitutional crisis when the 1909 Finance Bill containing Lloyd George’s budget was rejected by the House of Lords.
As can be seen from the 1911 Act, this provides a statutory means of controlling the power of the Lords to veto measures democratically introduced by the Commons, possibly under what might be called their Manifesto promises.
