How to use

Cut & paste

Either

{{UK MP links
| parliament   = 
| hansardcurr  = 
| hansard      = 
| publicwhip   = 
| theywork     = 
| record       = 
| journalisted = 
}}

or

{{UK MP links | parliament = | hansardcurr = | hansard = | publicwhip = | theywork = | record = | journalisted = }}

The order of the fields does not matter.

Fields

  • All parameters are optional, but if you don't include any of them, nothing will show up.
  • Do not use capital letters. They might disrupt the code.
  • The parliament field may be a combined name and numerical id (e.g. nick-clegg/1563) or numerical id only (e.g. 1563). Either format will work.
