Former MP for Ipswich
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.

I want an assurance that respectable people like Mrs. Farrow who get involved in the mesh of the police background of an African State will have...
Does the hon. Gentleman recall that in a Written Answer on 6th May he specifically said that he would provide for this special subject by means of consultations with his colleagues? What consultations has he had with his colleagues and what practical differences have those discussions made to the arts?
