It is called the Commonwealth. It includes many countries such as Ireland, Burma, the Sudan, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and others.

Parliament grew in 1542 when King Henry VIII formally invited members from Wales to join the body as he wanted to prevent the country from falling under the influence of the Catholic Church. Five years later, his son, King Edward VI gave the Commons St. Stephen’s Chapel to use for their meetings. Throughout the 17th and 18th Centuries, parliamentary power grew such as to require any taxation to have Parliament’s consent and the Bill of Rights declaring the body’s supremacy over the monarch. The Acts of Union with Scotland in 1707 led to the creation of the Parliament of Great Britain.
