Mr T.P. O'Connor

Former MP for Liverpool Scotland

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 wish to ask the Prime Minister whether it has not been the unbroken tradition of Parliamentary life for at least 30 or 40 years that no Minister has ever anticipated the presentation of a proposal by the Government to the House of Commons, which should be the first body to hear it, and whether it is not the case that in the lives and careers of Mr. Gladstone and other great Prime Ministers...
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: Housing Bill. 11 Apr 1928

    Is my right hon. Friend serious in stating that the precedent is a bad one which safeguards the fundamental right of the representatives of the people to have brought before them, before anyone else, any Measure that the Government intend to introduce, and is there any precedent in Parliamentary history of such a transaction as that which is contemplated by the Minister of Health to-morrow?
