Mr Sidney Dye

Former MP for South West Norfolk

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.

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.

    In view of the fact that these demonstrators have been in this neighbourhood for some time, endeavouring to cause a stoppage of work by picketing and, having failed to do it by those means, by going on to the site, is it not time that workmen engaged in this work should be protected against intrusion by people who desire, for political purposes, to bring about a stoppage of work? Is the...
  • R.a.F. Station, North Pickenham (Demonstration) 8 Dec 1958

    Will the right hon. Gentleman see that the further report to which he referred is made available to the House, to make it plain that undue force was not used by the local or other police engaged on that site against any of the demonstrators? [HON. MEMBERS: "How does the hon. Member know?"] I was there.
