Mr Stanley Henig

Former MP for Lancaster

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.

    I wonder if my right hon. Friend would continue to keep this matter under close review in view of the fact that fortunately the bulk of the population has an increasing amount of leisure time? Would it not be appropriate for a Government concerned with the good life to make sure that such leisure facilities as theatres and sports stadia are available to all people in all parts of the country?
  • Business of the House 23 Apr 1970

    Will my right hon. Friend find time for a debate on the recent Report of the Select Committee on Procedure to allow, among other things, hon. Members to express their views on the persistent refusal by the Table Office to accept certain classes of Questions?
