Imports data on House of Lords attendance from each parliamentary session. Please note that the attendance data is not as tidy as some of the others that are accessible through this API, and so additional work to prepare this data in a way that you want may be required.

lords_attendance_session(session_id = NULL, extra_args = NULL,
  tidy = TRUE, tidy_style = "snake", verbose = TRUE)

hansard_lords_attendance_session(session_id = NULL, extra_args = NULL,
  tidy = TRUE, tidy_style = "snake", verbose = TRUE)

Arguments

session_id

The ID of the House of Lords session. If NULL, returns a list of all sessions, subject to other parameters. Defaults to NULL.

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 details on the lords who attended a given session.

Details

To return a tibble with all codes from available individual sessions, use lords_attendance_session(session_id=NULL), or use lords_sessions() to retrieve codes for a given date range. Attendance from multiple sessions can be accessed by using lapply with the output from lords_sessions().

Please note that House of Lords attendance data is not as tidy as some of the others that are accessible through this API, and so additional work on the return from the API may be required.

Also note that this API does not appear to have been updated with data after 2017-01-31.
