Mhairi Black's lack of attendance for voting is causing the SNP hierarchy to become concerned - Ms Black has only voted in one-fifth of divisions since June.
Reports suggest that SNP sources are defending Mhairi Black and are saying that she has been unwell since the summer and had been advised not to travel.
Ms Black did appear in Westminster on Wednesday of last week to criticise the rollout of Universal Credit. She didn't attend on the following day.
Ms Black allegedly hates Westminster, finding it "depressing". She has hinted that she does not intend to stand in 2020.
