Conservatives vs Labour – How well does your MP represent your constituency?

Houses of parliament, taken from london eye

Some Yorkshire MPs are speaking in hundreds of debates whereas others don’t speak at all, recent data has revealed.

Residents of York Central will be pleased to find out that their constituency MP, Rachael Maskell, is overall the most hard-working MP in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

Analysis of Ms Maskell’s speeches in parliament has revealed that she ranked first for speaking about her constituency, having mentioned York 200 times. Leeds Now analysed data gathered from The Public Whip, They Work For You and IPSA – all public sources of data – to reveal which MP worked hardest for their constituency.

We looked at:

  • The amount of times MPs mentioned their constituency between 6 November 2018 and 6 November 2019
  • How they voted during this parliament (since 2017) How many times they rebelled against party policy in votes.
  • How many times MPs asked written questions and the number of debates they took part in, in the last 12 months.
  • How much they claimed on expenses in the last financial year (IPSA)

With a general election approaching on 12 December, find out how well your MP has represented your constituency in parliament.
