Former MP for Bootle
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.

We will update this information if the situation changes. See more detail on votes during the COVID-19 period here.

I and those who went before me have spent long and weary years trying to improve...
