Both the House of Commons and the House of Lords hold debates in which Members discuss government policy, proposed new laws and current issues.
Votes in Parliament are known as divisions. These take place in both the Commons and the Lords: Members physically go into two different areas either side of their debating chambers to register their votes hence the term.
MPs are required to register within 28 days any interest which someone might reasonably consider to influence their actions or words as an MP. The detailed rules, which explain exactly which interests are to be registered, are set out in the Guide to the Rules relating to the conduct of Members.
The Register of Lords' Interests lists every relevant interest registered by Members of the House of Lords in accordance with the Code of Conduct for Members of the House of Lords . The Register is updated every 15 minutes, except during recess.
