Abstract

Parliament during the pandemic allowed MPs who couldn’t be physically present– due to caring responsibilities, travel restrictions, shielding – to carry on representing their constituents from home in many, but not all, parliamentary activities. Jessica C. Smith explains why this hybrid basis should continue post-pandemic, so that the House functions both as a place of democracy and of work.
