Brigadier-General John Charteris

Former MP for Dumfriesshire

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.

    I do not want to enter into an argument with my hon. and gallant Friend as to the attitude of the county councils, but I suggest that it is not very probable that the Ayr County Council will allow themselves to be drawn away from what is fair because the company will have an estimated surplus. Surely we can trust our local authorities to be a little more careful in their investigation and...

    The principal part of the expenditure will be for actual manual labour With regard to employment, that of course is a very important aspect of the case, and if I believed for a moment that the true representation of the case was that this scheme was only to give employment to the number of people required for the preparation of the head works for a given period, as opposed to permanent...
