  extra_args = NULL, tidy = TRUE, tidy_style = "snake",
  verbose = TRUE)

  verbose = TRUE)

Arguments

division_id

The id of a particular vote. If empty, returns a tibble with information on all commons divisions, subject to all other parameters. Defaults to NULL. Only accepts a single division ID at a time, but to return details on a list of division IDs use with lapply. The division_id takes priority over the division_uid parameter.

division_uin

The UIN of a particular vote. If empty, returns a tibble with information on all commons divisions, subject to all other parameters. Defaults to NULL. Only accepts a single division UIN at a time, but to return details on a list of division UINs use with lapply.

summary

If TRUE, returns a small tibble summarising a division outcome. Otherwise returns a tibble with details on how each MP voted. Has no effect if division_id is empty. Defaults to FALSE.

start_date

Only includes divisions on or after this date. Accepts character values in 'YYYY-MM-DD' format, and objects of class Date, POSIXt, POSIXct, POSIXlt or anything else that can be coerced to a date with as.Date(). Defaults to '1900-01-01'.

end_date

Only includes divisions on or before this date. Accepts character values in 'YYYY-MM-DD' format, and objects of class Date, POSIXt, POSIXct, POSIXlt or anything else that can be coerced to a date with as.Date(). Defaults to the current system date.

extra_args

Additional parameters and queries to pass to API. These queries must be strings and start with "&". See the API documentation or the package vignette for more details. Defaults to NULL.

tidy

Logical parameter. If TRUE, fixes the variable names in the tibble to remove special characters and superfluous text, and converts the variable names to a consistent style. Defaults to TRUE.

tidy_style

The style to convert variable names to, if tidy = TRUE. Accepts any style accepted by to_any_case. Defaults to 'snake'.

verbose

If TRUE, displayes messages on the console on the progress of the API request. Defaults to TRUE.

Value

A tibble with the results of divisions in the House of Commons.
