Whips help to organise their party’s contribution to parliamentary business, and one of their main responsibilities is to make sure the MPs vote the way the party leadership want them to vote.

Since being elected last June, Ms Onasanya has also been appointed as a member of the Communities and Local Government Committee in the House of Commons.
