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.

I am sure that we are all extremely pleased to hear Her Majesty’s loyal Opposition defending companies that could end up under the cosh of the Bill’s provisions. Whether it is facilitation payments, or that a company’s efforts to promote its cause in some exotic place are misconstrued—
I have not got to my point yet. I was particularly taken with the Under-Secretary’s comment that she had consulted the CBI. Obviously, we are all gratified that there is such a doughty defender of civil and human rights in this country, never mind elsewhere. During her consultations, did she consult SOCA to determine its view on the Bill, and especially on clause 6?
A terrible shame!
