Viscount Hinchingbrooke

Former MP for South Dorset

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.

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.

    During my right hon. Friend's very successful tour of the Rhodesias, reports arrived in this country to the effect that Dr. Banda had made an absolute demand for secession and that my right hon. Friend had accommodated him to the extent of conceding the principle. I was not quite sure from his answers whether that was the case.
  • Foreign Affairs Debate (Minister of Defence) 28 May 1962

    Is not my right hon. Friend the Minister of Defence a servant of this House as a whole? Is he to be put at the beck and call of a little caucus of right hon. Gentlemen opposite who are not even followed by large sections of their party? Are there not many quarters in this House—including the Liberal Party and many of my hon. Friends—who are entirely satisfied with my right hon. Friend's...
