Greg Clark

Conservative MP for Tunbridge Wells

@gregclarkmp

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.

Greg Clark’s voting in Parliament

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

However, Greg Clark sometimes differs from their party colleagues, such as:

  • Greg Clark voted for allowing terminally ill people to be given assistance to end their life, while most Conservative MPs generally voted against. Show votes
  • Greg Clark generally voted for removing hereditary peers from the House of Lords, while most Conservative MPs generally voted against. Show votes

    As my right hon. Friend knows, if we are to suppress the virus, we need an agile and vigorous response.

    The Secretary of State is assiduous and energetic in making himself available to answer questions at all times, and I am grateful that he has agreed to come before my Committee next week so that we have longer than we would have had today given this statement. In March, we did not have the testing capacity in place to cope with the volume of testing that was needed, and it took until May to...
