Mr Anthony Head

Former MP for Carshalton

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.

He has always been a deep thinker on defence, and I do not think that, if I say that I do not entirely agree with what he has said, he will consider that it is any reflection on the depth of his...
  • Long-Range Ballistic Missile (Blue Streak) 27 Apr 1960

    I am not detracting from the value of one Polaris-carrying submarine. All I am saying is that we must realise that if there is to be dispersal of these weapons we must have a number of these submarines to make an effective deterrent and the cost of the vehicle for Polaris is astronomic. Polaris is now a deterrent. It is a weapon that works. If we invest in this undersea moving platform, I...
