Arguments

peer_id

Requests a member ID and returns a tibble with all written questions asked by that member. If NULL, peer_id is not included in the query to the API. Defaults to NULL.

answering_department

Accepts a string with a department name or partial name, and returns all written questions by that department. The query acts as a search, so entering <health> will return all questions answered by the Department of Health. If NULL, answering_department is not included as a query parameter. Defaults to NULL.

start_date

The earliest date to include in the tibble. Defaults to '1900-01-01'. 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().

end_date

The latest date to include in the tibble. Defaults to current system date. Defaults to '1900-01-01'. 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().

extra_args

Additional parameters to pass to API. Defaults to NULL.

tidy

Fix 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 one of 'snake_case', 'camelCase' and 'period.case'. Defaults to 'snake_case'.

Value

A tibble with details on written questions in the House of Lords.
