Mr Alfred Jephcott

Former MP for Birmingham, Yardley

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.

    I suppose I am correct in assuming that under this Amendment we may discuss, a little more fully than has been permitted on the last two Amendments, the general question with regard to this Clause. If that be so, I should like to say that, if I have understood the last two hon. Members aright, their organisations have not had a political levy in the ordinary sense. The political levy has been...
  • Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 4. — (Provisions as to political fund.) 25 May 1927

    I still think that I am correct in what I said, that the money, the political levy, is collected with other moneys, and according to the hon. Member for Shipley (Mr. Mackinder) after the contribution has been collected by his own organisation the political portion is taken out. Personally, I entirely oppose that principle. If you are going to have a political levy it should be one pure and...
