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.

Boris Johnson’s voting in Parliament

Boris Johnson is a Conservative MP, and on the vast majority of issues votes the same way as other Conservative MPs.

However, Boris Johnson sometimes differs from their party colleagues, such as:

  • Boris Johnson generally voted against university tuition fees, while most Conservative MPs generally voted for. Show votes
  • Boris Johnson generally voted for greater regulation of gambling, while most Conservative MPs generally voted against. Show votes

We have lots more plain English analysis of Boris Johnson’s voting record on issues like health, welfare, taxation and more. Visit Boris Johnson’s full vote analysis page for more.

Boris Johnson has never rebelled against their party in the current parliament. Find out more.

  • Prime Minister: Engagements 2 Dec 2020

    Absolutely. I strongly urge people to take up the vaccine, but it is no part of our culture or our ambition in this country to make vaccines mandatory. That is not how we do things.
