Mr George Drayson

Former MP for Skipton

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

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 am very sympathetic towards the amendment, which I do not think goes far enough. I am surprised that we have not had a number of amendments on the Notice Paper increasing the sum involved to £15 or £20. However, I am glad that we have not indulged in "pensioneering". A number of hon. Members have shown that that is something that they heartily dislike. I should have liked the amendment...
  • Education and Social Services 4 Nov 1977

    There is one aspect of education that I wish to bring to the notice of the Secretary of State, although she may deny any responsibility for it. It is this very serious problem of getting children to school in rural areas. During the Summer Recess, I had the opportunity to meet a large number of parents who were very concerned that local authorities, because of the restrictions placed on...
  • PUBLIC LENDING RIGHTS BILL [Lords] 14 Oct 1976

    My hon. and learned Friend has referred to the penal aspect of the Bill. Has he considered the position of the libraries in prisons? Will they be making their full contribution to the fund? Are they covered by the Bill?
