Clare Bailey

Green MLA for Belfast South

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs have been less able to vote in Parliament, and this will be reflected 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.

The very next day, our First Minister gets into a taxi and, with...
  • Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Health: Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic 23 Nov 2020

    We need to have a good look at ourselves. The five-party Executive system is not designed to manage crisis; it was a means to create a sense of stability and bring an end to violence. It was never meant to be a long-term solution, and we have lost sight of that. We see each party playing to its base and doing duck and cover to blame somebody when delivery fails. At the outset, we wrote civic...
  • Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Committee for the Economy: Energy Strategy Report 23 Nov 2020

    The Green Party also very much welcomes the motion. We are encouraged by the vast range of views and positive suggestions given by organisations to the energy strategy micro inquiry. We would now like to see those carefully analysed in order to extract the enormous amount of value and level of expertise that has been given to us in the report. Whilst we are hearing the strong common theme of...
