Former MP for Basingstoke
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.

Will he give an assurance that at least as much will be done for these people in this Colony as was done for the people of the Ionian Isles? Secondly, is he aware...
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will set up a small committee of persons with expert knowledge of African witchcraft and of tribal psychology to consider the profound influence of the Mau Mau oath upon Kikuyu mentality; and to make recommendations designed to weaken, or ridicule, the spell of fear which this oath imposes on Kikuyu.
