Mrs Sheila Faith

Former MP for Belper

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.

Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Patients (Statistics) 15 Mar 1983

    asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what information he has as to the number of inpatients and outpatients, respectively, treated in National Health Service hospitals in 1982–83; and what was the equivalent figure for 1978–79.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Patients (Statistics) 15 Mar 1983

    Does my hon. Friend agree that those figures are a matter for congratulation and reflect the fact that there are 40,000 more nurses and many more doctors working in the National Health Service, and that the National Health Service has been organised more efficiently since the Government took office?
  • National Health Service (Commercial Contractors) 17 Feb 1983

    Is my right hon. Friend aware that this will be good news for all those who suffered in hospital last year and during the winter of discontent when industrial action took place, because if the catering, laundry and cleaning services are broken down into smaller units that must be good for industrial relations and will in no way harm the concept of the National Health Service?
