Former MP for Chichester
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.

I am obliged to you, Mr. Speaker. I should not advocate that course. I was trying to be helpful to my hon. Friend, and perhaps I was going a little too far. I did not want my hon. Friend to think that we were against his good intentions in the matter. I was trying to assist him in saying that in seeking to defeat his parking meters scheme we were not leaving him entirely without any...
