FOI LORDS, House of Lords

Dear K. G. Ollerton

I am writing with regard to your request for information received by the
House of Lords on 12 October.

provide you with a complete response shortly.

Yours sincerely,

Dear KG Ollerton

I am writing in response to your request for information received by the
House of Lords on 12 October. I am sorry that this response has taken more
than 20 working days.

You requested attendance figures for each Member of the House of Lords
since 7 May 2010 expressed as a percentage. The House of Lords
Administration holds information relevant to your request. Please find
attached information detailing the attendance of each member of the House
and the number of possible days they could have attended. Please note that
a number of new Members have been introduced to the House within this
period, others may be on a leave of absence or be otherwise disqualified
from attending, the maximum attendance figure for these Members will
therefore be lower than the maximum number of days the House sat and may
even be shown as zero. This also applies to any Members that have died
during the period in question.

Please note that the State Opening of Parliament following the dissolution
for the general election in April 2010 was 25 May 2010. The information
ends at 30 September 2011, this is because Members have until the end of
the month following attendance in which to submit claims for financial
support which rely on attendance information, these figures are therefore
verified over this period and may be subject to change.

We have not included a percentage figure as we do not hold this
information and the Freedom of Information Act does not require a public
authority to create new information in order to respond to a request. The
information we have provided will however allow you to calculate a
percentage figure.

 

You may, if dissatisfied with the treatment of your request, ask the House
of Lords to conduct an internal review. This should be addressed to
[1][email address] or to the Freedom of Information Officer, House
of Lords, London SW1A 0PW. Arrangements will be made for someone who has
not been involved in dealing with your request to conduct an internal
review within 20 working days.

 

If, following this review, you remain dissatisfied with the House’s
treatment of your request for information; you may then take your
complaint to the information commissioner at Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

Alex Daybank

Information Compliance Manager

Dear FOI LORDS,

Thank you for your email of 11 November 2011 and the attached spreadsheet. This provides the information I have requested.

Thank you for your help.

Yours sincerely,

Ken,

I bet they have given you expenses claims numbers and not attendance figures.

There's no direct connection between the two. Given the two sets you could then check who was claiming for days they didn't attend.
