Viscount Edward Knebworth

Former MP for Hitchin

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.

  • Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. 20 Oct 1932

    As I listened to the speech of the right hon. Gentleman the late Secretary of State for Scotland, who is a great champion, incidentally, of Scottish economic nationalism, I felt that I was reading through a Debate which might have been taking place before the War. My whole being re-acted to his splendid oratory, but my whole sense of reason failed to appreciate the force of his arguments. It...
  • Orders of the Day — Supply. 16 Jun 1932

    I feel very diffident in addressing this Chamber for the first time on a subject of this importance, but it is only because I feel that the subject is the most important which has come before the consideration of Parliament since the Election that I ask the indulgence of the Committee to discard for a moment the rôle of appreciative audience. I shall endeavour to approach this subject from a...
