Mike Hall

Former Labour MP for Weaver Vale

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.

I hope that we can decide on substantial and sustainable reductions on carbon emissions this weekend. I...

    I am grateful for my hon. Friend's intervention. I am about to address his point about the water companies' introduction of the concessionary scheme. I hope that confirmation will be put on record during the wind-ups that the Government envisage that the community groups covered by the Bill will include guide associations and village halls, because it is important that they are included in...
  • Petition — Hospital Parking Charges (Cheshire) 1 Jul 2009

    Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has introduced car parking charges at the Victoria infirmary, Northwich. After the first 20 minutes, patients and visitors now have to pay £3 for parking. The Victoria infirmary is the only public facility in Northwich that charges for car parking, and I congratulate Gina Bebbington and the Northwich Guardian on their campaign against those...
