The United Kingdom Parliament is composed of the Crown, that is the monarch, the House of Lords, an appointive and hereditary upper chamber, and the popularly elected lower chamber, the House of Commons.
The latter enjoys supremacy over the former: the House of Lords' powers, originally equal to those of the House of Commons, were drastically reduced in 1911 and 1949 to delay of nonmoney (non-fiscal) bills.
From 1918 until 1985, parliamentary candidates were required to submit a £150 deposit, which was forfeited in the event the candidate failed to secure one-eight (12.5%) of all valid votes.

Membership of the EU is a derogation from parliamentary sovereignty in practice, even if not in theory, since all of the EU's powers flow from Parliament's sovereignty by way of the original Act, and therefore Parliament retains ultimate sovereignty.
There is a limited retention of parliamentary sovereignty in many areas of European concern, since the UK has limited powers to determine penalties for breach of EU law, and since the option is often left open in directives not to implement parts of the directive.

Although such constraints ran contrary to older conceptions of parliamentary supremacy in a republican form of government, the drafters concluded that they were necessary to ensure the place of the parliament in a democratic system of separation of powers.

In British constitutional law, parliamentary supremacy is the principle that the current parliament of the United Kingdom is supreme to all other governmental institutions including the monarch and the court s, and may change legislation passed by previous parliaments.
And in fact the unqualified supremacy, bestowed upon the constitution, is equally a guaranty of state and of federal powers, as is demonstrated by the positive limitation of the supremacy bestowed on federal laws, to such as were conformable to the restricted legislative power, created by the constitution.
For example, a regime of unicameral parliamentary supremacy might be said to have a constitution that allows a parliamentary majority to pass any legislation that it pleases and to override the courts or executive whenever the legislature is in disagreement with their actions.

By dispensing with the older notions of parliamentary supremacy that permitted unchecked delegation, the evolution of constitutional doctrine in West Germany and France after 1945 helped to reinforce the democratic character of the postwar administrative state in a historically recognizable sense.

Much as I disagree with Harper's opposition to same-sex marriage, he is obviously a man of principle, committed to the ideal of a country where elected officials make laws and courts mind their own business.
Essentially, Harper appears to value the supremacy of Parliament only when he is desperately trying to prevent same-sex couples from exercising their fundamental human rights.
