Former MP for Rotherham
All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.
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.
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.

There can hardly ever have been a piece of legislation that has so...
Is the Secretary of State aware that the South Yorkshire metropolitan ambulance service is highly efficient and highly regarded? Will he explain how the service will be improved by being separated from the health authorities with which it has to work, and by management's being top-loaded with half a dozen salaried non-executive directors? How will that improve the service for patients?
