Former MP for Horsham
All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.
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.
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 a delusion to suppose that any future British Government will have the freedom to run a substantial budget deficit without incurring high interest rates? Is it not, therefore, all the more important that we play a part in shaping the rules that will govern the powerful European currency that is certain to emerge?
The National Audit Office employs 354 qualified accountants, 64 qualified accounting technicians and 98 staff who are currently training for professional accountancy qualifications. Those numbers are marginally different from those that a gave my hon. Friend on 13 May.
I am sure that the National Audit Office will continue to examine all ways to save public money and to increase efficiency. As far as I know, the Government do not intend to do away with competitive tendering. On the issue of a change of Government, I do not think that the National Audit Office could enter into unnecessary speculation on an unlikely hypothesis of that kind.
