Former MP for Burton
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.

It is with some temerity that I enter into this Debate, because this subject is one which can have great repercussions throughout the country, especially in the light of the speech which has just been made by the Chancellor. I think it would be true to say that there can be no difference of opinion about the first part of the White Paper, which strikes me as being something like a lecture...
My right hon. and learned Friend suggested the circumstances in which wage increases could take place. If it is only in special circumstances that they can take place, then that is a method of stabilisation. It is essential, in the interests of the country, that there should be some method of controlling salaries and wages, but profits should be controlled, too. The Chancellor said he would...
