Question for The Senior Deputy Speaker

UIN HL9305, tabled on 19 October 2020

To ask the Senior Deputy Speaker how many current members of the House have not (1) attended a sitting of the House, Grand Committee or committee meeting, (2) spoken, and (3) voted, since 1 January.

Answered on

30 October 2020

(1) 42

(2) 192

(3) 91

The answer is based on the total number of members who were members on 20 October (819). The total includes members on leave of absence and those yet to be introduced, and excludes those who were members from 1 January but have since died or retired.

Office holders, or the holders of ceremonial roles, may speak rarely or not at all, and for some voting is not appropriate to their role.
