Mr Frank Griffith

Former MP for Middlesbrough West

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.

    Is it not the case that the right hon. Gentleman is now putting before us the real essence of what we have to discuss? Yet none of that is in the Bill. If this Bill is passed, the right hon. Gentleman can do what he has just indicated, but he can also do a great variety of other things.
  • Orders of the Day — EMERGENCY POWERS (DEFENCE) (No. 2) BILL. 6 Aug 1940

    The right hon. Gentleman the Member for Keighley (Mr. Lees-Smith) claimed that the Bill would secure the substitution of civil courts for military courts. I do not know where he got that idea. He cannot have got it from the Bill, but he may have got it from the right hon. Gentleman's explanation. Our whole difficulty is that the Bill and the right hon. Gentleman's speech are so different....
  • Orders of the Day — EMERGENCY POWERS (DEFENCE) (No. 2) BILL. 6 Aug 1940

    None of this is in the Bill.
