MPs in the 2017 Parliament who are related to current or former Members of the House of Commons.Jump to full report >>
This list notes MPs who, as of September 2017, have family members who are also current or former Members of the House of Commons. The list contains all those currently known to the Commons Library. In-laws are not included and relationships more than four generations back are not noted.
Due to the difficulties in documenting relationships of this nature, the Library cannot guarantee that this list is definitive. We are always happy to hear of any additions or amendments to the list. Please email the Parliamentary Information Lists Editor with any comments.
Note: Subsequent honours or peerages awarded after the Member has left the Commons are not reflected in this list.
Information from the 2010, 2015 and 2017 parliaments is available in the spreadsheet uploaded as a supporting document to this list.
British Political Facts, Butler and Butler 2011, provides information on the family connections of MPs from 1900 to 2010.
