Dame Florence Horsbrugh

Former MP for Manchester Moss Side

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

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.

There is bound to be a considerable gap before the...

    Does my hon. Friend realise that public opinion is very anxious that no basic principles will be abandoned during this Conference and that in any negotiations which may take place we shall stand by what we have stated as being absolutely necessary?
  • Business of the House 27 Jul 1959

    Is my right hon. Friend aware that the Leader of the Opposition did not object on Thursday to the order of the business when it was announced? Is he also aware that hon. Members—on both sides of the House, I feel sure—have made arrangements to attend here at the times of the debates they wish to attend and that if the order of the debates is changed now without any notice hon. Members...
