Mr Richard Marsh

Former MP for Greenwich

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs were less able to vote in Parliament in certain periods, and this will be reflected by absences in their voting record.

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.

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Private Tenants (Rent Rebates) 31 Mar 1971

    The hon. Gentleman is under an obligation to give the House a little more information than that. Will he tell the House whether the additional funds, whatever they may be, are to be arrived at by a re-allocation of the existing amounts available, which are inadequate, or whether the Government are prepared to make additional funds available?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Planning Blight (Compensation) 17 Feb 1971

    If the right hon. Gentleman cannot deal with the whole question of planning blight now, why is there so much delay in dealing with the problem of injurious affection, given that the Government inherited clear proposals from the last Government eight months ago in a draft Bill?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Francis Committee (Report) 17 Feb 1971

    In the light of his answer, will the right hon. Gentleman tell the House whether the very detailed account of the report recently appearing in a London evening newspaper, by Mr. Des Wilson, was untrue and gave a misleading picture of the report; and, if it were not untrue, how can he tell the House that we have to wait until the report is published when it is clearly available to the Press?
