House of Representatives

House of Representatives

The New Zealand Parliament consists of only a single chamber – the House of Representatives. In 1897, when this photograph was taken, a second chamber, the Legislative Council, also existed. However, it had little independent influence, as its members were mostly appointees of the government of the day. It was abolished in 1951.
