has elapsed and the MP for North Down has still not been sighted at Westminster. Theyworkforyou still records no contribution from Sylvia Hermon since March of this year, during the last parliament.
The House of Commons is due to rise for its summer recess on 27 July and will not be recalled until 6 September. If Hermon fails to make a late appearance, she will have ignored entirely the new parliament's first session.
During the election campaign she promised to make 'every vote count' as an independent. So far more than thirty votes have taken place, with a new activist government she claims to oppose getting into the swing of its first term in office. Clearly none of these divisions has concerned Hermon or the voters of North Down.
It would be interesting to know whether she intends to start representing her constituents in September or continuing to act like quasi-nobility.
