Arguments

search

Accepts any string. Defaults to NULL. If NULL, returns a tibble with all members of both houses of parliament.

tidy

Fix the variable names in the tibble to remove extra characters, superfluous text and convert variable names to snake_case. For the ‘members_search' function it also changes the ’_about' column name to 'mnis_id' (or 'mnisId' or 'mnis.id', depending on the value of the 'tidy_text' parameter, and removes the URL to preserve only the numerical ID. 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 the results of the search.
