This provides a user interface which allows you to search members using multiple filters, suitable for developers and non-developers. Selecting this option will show you the first few records from the dataset and then allow you to select data from the dataset by filtering on any of the attributes for Commons Members. You will then be able to download or display the data in the following formats: CSV (e.g. for use in Microsoft Excel), TTL, Text, XML, JSON or RDF (e.g. for developers)
The Members' Names Data Platform has been created in order to provide interested parties with full access information about Members of Parliament and Peers sitting in the House of Lords. Data is available for current and previous members and is exposed in a number of formats.
Developers can build API calls using the explorer tool. Help for the APIs can be found at http://explore.data.parliament.uk/?learnmore=Members
