Former MP for King's Lynn
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.

I am sure it is not the object of the...
I fully agree with the remarks which fell from the hon. and gallant Member for the Sudbury Division of Suffolk (Major Howard), and I hope the Ministry will take them to heart. I am not going now to criticise the Ministry. I want rather to ask its assistance. I have been assisted so often by the right hon. Gentleman who sits on the Treasury Bench and his staff recently over matters connected...
