Can't believe you missed Valerie Vaz out of your assumption...

Valerie Vaz - Shadow Leader of the House - B.Sc. (Hons) Biochemistry
Dan Carden - B.Sc. International Relations
Tony Lloyd - B.Sc. Maths

My party only has 19 MPs, but of those, no less than 9 fit your parameters:
Heidi Allen - B.Sc. degree in astrophysics
Jo Swinson - first-class Bachelor of Science degree in Management
Jamie Stone - History and Geology
Layla Moran - B.Sc. Physics. Was a maths and physics teacher at the International School of Brussels
Dr. Phillip Lee - B.Sc. Human Biology and Biological Anthropology. Went on to study medicine
Ed Davey - M.Sc. Economics
Vince Cable - PhD degree in Economics
Tom Brake - BSc in Physics
Dr. Sarah Wollaston - B.Sc. Medicine

You really are adverse to facts, aren't you?
You really want to go so far down the list? One could argue the influence that the Shadow Leader of the House has on Labourís Brexit policy, however itís simpler just to point out that Alok Sharma, the international development secretary and cabinet member, has a degree in Physics. So your statement that there are no scientists in Boris Johnsonís cabinet is factually wrong.

Iíve never known such a finicky responses over detail. There could be a conversation over why so few scientists are MPs, or whether scientists would make better MPs.
