Former MP for Dartford
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 the Noble Lord aware that this old man has been rendered absolutely destitute through the action of enemy aircraft; that this claim has been repeatedly put before the Commission; and will he undertake to treat it as a destitute case as he promised in answer to another question? Is he also aware that this old man and his wife are on the verge of the workhouse and have had writs served upon them?
I am raising the question in this way because so many applications have been made with no satisfactory result.
