The metrics on activity of MPs is collated from data on the Parliament website. Attendance is computed as the days the MP signed the attendance register as a percentage of the days he was eligible to sign the register. Questions provide a count of the total number of questions - starred and unstarred - posed by the MP and admitted to be answered. Debates provide a count of all occasions when the MP spoke in Parliament - on Bills, during zero hour, special mentions, under rules 377, 193 etc. Under Private Member Bills, we count all Bills introduced by the MP.
Ministers do not sign the attendance register. As they represent the Government in Parliament, they do not ask questions, participate in debates as ordinary members, or introduce private member bills. The Speaker and Deputy Speaker follow similar conventions. The Leader of the Opposition does not sign the attendance register but does take part in all other activities. The data provided here is for all MPs for the period that they did not occupy any of these positions.
