Frequently asked questions

If you have anything else you want to ask, get in touch.

  • How do you calculate the charts?

    The app imports the daily record (called Hansard) and chops it down into individual words. It notes which MP spoke each word and knows which Party each MP belongs to. It then produces charts from this data.
  • Is it all charts? Can I read the words spoken in a debate?

    Yes, you can read the full debates. The objective of the charts is to help you navigate to the debate content that interests you fast.
  • Can I see what an MP is talking about?

    Yes. You can search for an MP, see the topics they speak about and read their contributions. You can also set an alert so that you get a notification on your phone when they have spoken..
  • Can I set notifications?

    Yes, you can set MP notifications and Topic notifications. Every time one of your favourite MPs speaks, or whenever one of your favourite topics is discussed, you will receive a notification on your phone.
  • Will it work on my phone?

    QuickPolitics is designed to work on iPhones running iOS14+, and devices running Android 5.1+ with Chromium 79+.
  • Can I use it on my desktop computer?

    No. QuickPolitics is currently only available as a smartphone app. However, it does work on iPad and tablets.
  • What does it cost?

    All new users pay only 99p/month for the first 3 months of their subscription. After this the subscription will renew at the standard price. This is currently £4.99/month. You can cancel your subscription at any time, and your service (and billing) will terminate at the end of that subscription month.
  • Can I cancel if I don’t like it?

    Yes! Your subscription will auto renew but you can cancel it at any time. You can cancel it through your Apple or Google Play account.

    Not currently. But watch this space for updates.
  • Does it include Committees?

    QuickPolitics includes the Committees reported by Hansard. These are the Public Bill Committees and also General Committees.
  • Can I share the information?

    Yes. There are several share functions, and where we don’t offer one, you can always share a screenshot
  • What is Hansard?

    Hansard is the official report of all Parliamentary debates. It is “substantially verbatim”. We use Commons Hansard (as opposed to Lords Hansard). Commons Hansard includes proceedings in the Commons Chamber and Westminster Hall, as well as written ministerial statements, petitions and ministerial corrections, with separate reports produced of proceedings in Commons General and Public Bill Committees.
  • Is QuickPolitics affiliated with any political party?

    No definitely not. Our entire purpose is to provide a politically neutral charted summary of what is happening in the House of Commons.
  • Who owns QuickPolitics?

    QuickPolitics is owned by two private individuals, neither of whom is a member of any political party or organisation. The business is based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England.
  • Are you allowed to use Hansard data?

    Yes. QuickPolitics contains Parliamentary information licensed under the Open Parliament Licence v3.0.
  • How far back does the data go?

    Subscribers can see data back to the beginning of 2020. The Daily View, MP Rankings, Topic Search and MP Search all operate across the full date range for subscribers. Non subscribers can only see a summary of the most recent day that parliament sat.
