What is the difference between Parliament and the House of Representatives?

The House of Representatives is part of Parliament. Parliament consists of the House of Representatives and the Sovereign (the Queen), who usually acts through her representative in New Zealand, the Governor-General.

A Bill becomes an Act when it is passed by the House of Representatives, and assented to (signed) by the Governor-General.
