Sir Arthur Irvine

Former MP for Liverpool Edge Hill

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.

    Order. Seventeen hon. Members are trying to catch my eye. The winding-up speeches will be starting at five minutes to two o'clock. I appeal for brevity.
  • Bill Presented: Rate Support Grant 14 Dec 1978

    I am the servant of the House. I understand that it is the wish of the House that the debate should stop at 2.21. I can do nothing about that.
  • Bill Presented: Rate Support Grant 14 Dec 1978

    If we are to have any reply to the speeches which have been made, we should hear the Front Bench speeches.
