MP's Attendance During Debates in Houses of Parliament to be Recorded

After watching BBC Parliament on 27th Feb I was shocked to see the severe lack of MPs in attendance for the Welfare Reforms Debate.

I therefore would like attendance records published showing all MP's attendance percentages and which specific debates they have attended to be made available to all the UK public.

If these are not recorded, which I believe they are, then I want all future MP's attendance and the specific debates attended to be recorded and records to be made available to all the UK public.

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

E-petitions cannot be used to request action on issues that are outside the responsibility of the government. This includes:

  • party political material
  • commercial endorsements including the promotion of any product, service or publication
  • issues that are dealt with by devolved bodies, eg The Scottish Parliament
  • correspondence on personal issues

E-petitions cannot be used for freedom of information requests.

The following explanatory notes have been added:

This is a matter for the House and not for HM Government
