Mr Denis Keegan

Former MP for Nottingham South

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs have been less able to vote in Parliament, and this will be reflected 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.

    I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. I should like to say just a few words, if I may, Mr. Speaker, about all four of the Lords Amendments, because they are all consequential upon each other. The object of the Amendments which were made in another place is simply to clarify the drafting of the Bill. It was discovered, when the Bill left this House,...
  • Multiple Sclerosis 7 Jun 1957

    It is with a sense of gratitude that I rise to discuss what I believe to be a subject of very considerable importance, that of multiple, or disseminated, sclerosis. This disease is one of the most debilitating that is known today, but there is considerable lack of public knowledge about it. I should like to make quite clear that it is not my intention, by virtue of this debate, to spread...
