  date = Sys.Date(),
  tidy = TRUE,
  tidy_style = "snake_case"
)

Arguments

house

The house of parliament. Accepts either 'Lords' or 'Commons'. This parameter is not case sensitive, so both 'lords' and 'Lords' return the same result. Defaults to 'Commons'.

date

The date to query party standing on. Accepts character values in 'YYYY-MM-DD' format, and objects of class Date, POSIXt, POSIXct, POSIXlt or anything else than can be coerced to a date with as.Date(). Defaults to the current system date.

tidy

If TRUE, fixes the variable names in the tibble to remove non-alphanumeric characters and superfluous text, and convert to a consistent style. Defaults to TRUE.

tidy_style

The style to convert variable names to, if tidy=TRUE. Accepts one of "snake_case", "camelCase" and "period.case". Defaults to "snake_case".

Value

A tibble with information on the total numbers and gender of MPs, by party, for the given date and house.
