Sir James Henderson-Stewart

Former MP for Fife 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.

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.

    Others talked about it, too. The Committee may recall that I had something to say about the need for a wide-ranging inquiry into Scottish industrial conditions so that we could, as I put it, blue-print the future development of our country. In reading the Plowden Report over the weekend, I was interested to see exactly the same suggestion for a five-year plan. That is what we wanted and that...

    That remains to be seen. We do not know what the report is yet.
