MP Activity and Voting Records




The Speaker is mandated by A114 to monitor and record the activity of Members of Parliament as follows:

1) Four weeks after the State Opening of Parliament, the Speaker will publish a voting review outlining the turnout of each MP to all Division Lobby votes so far that term excluding amendments.

2) Vacant seats and seats with an attendance strictly less than 70% will be highlighted as under consideration for removal.

3) Four weeks after the previous voting review, another voting review will be published.
a) Seats will again be highlighted as under consideration for removal if they are vacant or have an attendance strictly less than 70%
b) A highlighted seat which was also highlighted in any previous voting review during the same term will be put up for by-election; normal by-election procedures apply.
c) Parties whose seat(s) were put up for by-election as the result of a voting review are prohibited from participating in the resultant by-election.

4) A new voting review is published every four weeks after and these procedures are repeated until the end of term.

5) In exceptional circumstances, the Speaker may choose not to conduct a voting review or to not carry out a by-election, and should inform the House of such intention.


This thread is an archive of all voting updates over the years.

The current Rolling Voting Record can be found here.

This thread was originally created by former Speaker DayneD89, and is currently maintained by the incumbent Speaker PetrosAC.

I think it should be noted that kij has voted on three of the total bills so far, according to these records.

There really isnt one. The only thing that could be done is an election, so kij can be as inactive as he wants.

Here's a spreadsheet of how every MP has voted this term. Congratulations to Afcwimbledon2, Birchington, lotsofsnails and ThePants999, the only MPs to have voted on every bill and motion this term. Also, congratulations to Labour for having the highest voting percentage - 80.15%, closely followed by the Centre on 79.41% and the Tories on 77.65%.

I've played about with a bit of analysis too. Firstly, next to each party, I've added a little formula to give an idea of how the party voted as a whole on each bill: if more than half the MPs voted Aye or No, it shows that, if neither it shows Abstain. Secondly, there's a second sheet showing who agrees with who. What this does is to take a pair, for example Lib Dems and Drogue, gives it a score of 1 for every time they voted the same way, a score of -1 for every time one voted Aye and the other No, and a score of 0 otherwise, then adds up the score on all bills this term. It's not perfect by any means, as it doesn't take into account how strongly an individual feels about a vote or how strongly a party vote for something (just whether a majority voted one way), but it should give an idea.

Sorry this took so long, I hope it's useful!
