Mr Edward Burgin

Former MP for Luton

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 am sure the whole Committee will feel that the Minister has made a substantial contribution to the war effort by his speech to-day. Surely, we shall all be agreed that the story of achievement, in making known to the world Britain's part in the war, to which the Minister has called attention, has been well worth hearing. I hope that the Committee will share the view of my hon. Friends that...
  • Orders of the Day — Civil Estimates, 1944.: Ministry of Information 29 Jun 1944

    I am being very careful in my words. I am saying that in almost all the Republics of Latin America there is military dictatorship, complete and absolute censorship, and immense restriction on either the right of public speech——
