Mr Gordon McMaster

Former Labour MP for Paisley 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.

  • Orders of the Day — Dentists (Scotland) 11 Nov 1996

    My request is simple. The Minister has undertaken to look in detail at the cases in Greater Glasgow health board. Will he also look at the case of Nicholas Gilmour in Argyll and Clyde health board and at cases in Ayrshire and Arran health board?
  • Orders of the Day — Dentists (Scotland) 11 Nov 1996

    Earlier tonight, after my hon. Friend had some publicity about her Adjournment debate, I received a telephone call from Nicholas Gilmour, who, in 1987, was a constituent of mine and attended the same dental practice as I do in Johnstone, where I have had nothing but excellent treatment. He tells me that William Duff worked in that practice in Johnstone and that he was given three crowns, two...
