Former MP for Carmarthen
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.

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

The finances would be very much better ordered if that were the ease. From my experience of administration, I am quite certain that all Chancellors of the Exchequer can still effect very large and very useful reduction in public expenditure. In fact, there is no end to the amount of public money which can be saved by close, continuous and steady pressure. I was rather interested listening to...
