Mr Robert Bernays

Former MP for Bristol North

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.

Recent appearances

  • Bomb Damage Repairs (London Region) 15 Dec 1944

    As this allocation of materials apparently applies only to the London Region, will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that there are other bombed areas?
  • Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address 30 Nov 1944

    I do not understand the hon. Member's point. How is Germany going to be rendered harmless unless we first secure her unconditional surrender?
  • Emergency Powers (Defence) Act, 1939 (Continuance) 14 Jul 1944

    We have had in this Debate already a very significant speech from the hon. Member for Morpeth (Mr. R. J. Taylor). I think it is quite clear from what he said, speaking for his party, that in the struggle to get back our liberties we cannot look for much help from that quarter.
