Mr Aneurin Bevan

Former MP for Ebbw Vale

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.

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.

    That is not true. Therefore, in my respectful submission, a point of Privilege can be raised now, or not at all.

    Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. In view of the circumstances in which this whole matter has been raised, and of the fact that no opportunity has been given either to the House or to you for proper reflection, may I call your attention to a variety of precedents where Mr. Speaker has asked that he might be allowed to consider the whole matter, without prejudice, and report upon it...
