Mr Paul Emrys-Evans

Former MP for Derbyshire Southern

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 need not add to what the Prime Minister has said as to the danger involved to our security, and, indeed, our existence, by the attitude of neutrality adopted by the Eire Government in the war. There are, however, no grounds for suggesting that the Eire Government committed un-neutral acts to the disadvantage of this country.

    I have been asked to reply. Uriah Butler was detained under Section 16 of the Trinidad Defence Regulations in order to prevent his acting in any manner prejudicial to the public safety or defence. It has now been decided to release him from detention.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Navy: Jamaica (Director of Medical Services) 11 Apr 1945

    Dr. Hallinan will not reach the age of bo until January, 1946, and I understand from the Governor that he will then retire. The last part of the Question does not, therefore, arise.
