Greg Knight

Conservative MP for East Yorkshire

@GregKnight

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

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.

  • Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS England: Complaints 27 Sep 2022

    To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if she will take steps to ensure that NHS England deal with complaints and other issues raised with them by hon. Members in a speedy and efficient manner.
  • Shale Gas Extraction 22 Sep 2022

    Despite what the Secretary of State said, is it not the case that forecasting the occurrence of seismic events as a result of fracking remains a challenge to the experts? Is it not therefore creating a risk of an unknown quantity to pursue shale gas exploration at the present time? Is he aware that the safety of the public is not a currency in which some of us choose to speculate?
  • Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Dental Services: Bridlington 22 Sep 2022

    To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if she will investigate the current provision of orthodontic services in Bridlington following the closure of the Bridlington Orthodontic Centre; what assurances she has received from NHS England that they have made alternative provision for all those effected thereby; and if she will make a statement.
