Traditional Unionist Voice MLA for North Antrim

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs were less able to vote in Parliament in certain periods, and this will be reflected by absences in their voting record.

Show more detail
11th May to 2nd June 2020

All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.

2nd to 9th June 2020

The option of online voting was removed, and a number of MPs may have been unable to vote because they were not physically able to attend.

10th June 2020 onwards

The requirements on proxy voting were relaxed, allowing MPs to designate another MP to cast a vote on their behalf.

If an MP votes by proxy, it is effectively exactly the same as if they cast the vote in person and it shows up on their TheyWorkForYou voting record.

MPs are not required to designate a proxy, and may instead pair with an opposing MP to miss a vote. Parliament does not record when two MPs have come to a pairing arrangement, so on TheyWorkForYou, they will both appear to have been absent for the vote.

We will update this information if the situation changes. See more detail on votes during the COVID-19 period here.

How dare unionists...

    They are, but, sadly, most in the House do not care. They do not care that our farming industry faces a crisis because, come 31 December, 51% of our veterinary medicines will not be available. They do not care about the rise in steel prices. They do not care about the 30% increase in travel costs. They care only about the precious protocol because they see it as delivering their all-island...

    I am sure that we will have an opportunity to hear from you later. I say this gently to Mr Doug Beattie, who seems to put faith in certain talks: those talks cannot deliver a solution, because they are circumscribed by the mandate that the EU has given them. That mandate is only to tinker; it is only to make the protocol work better — whatever that means. There is no mandate that allows the...
