Mr Hamar Greenwood

Former MP for Walthamstow East

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.

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.

    My right to speak in this Debate has been questioned, unfairly as I will show, by the hon. and gallant Member for Central Hull (Lieut.-Commander Kenworthy). I am not interested in the Marconi Company. I am not interested in any cable company except—and here is where the hon. and gallant Gentleman in trying to score and hit below the belt, as I think, makes his mistake—
  • Orders of the Day — Imperial Telegraphs Bill. 21 Nov 1928

    I want to say, in reference to the point which the hon. and gallant Member raised, that the Edison Swan Cable Company is a company which does not make submarine cables, which are the only cables involved in this discussion. It makes cables for wiring in houses, factories and coal mines. It has nothing whatever to do with the subject under discussion. Surely, that is an answer to the question...
