Sir Charles Murchison

Former MP for Huntingdonshire

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

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.

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.

I agree that the Government, having appointed a Royal Commission to inquire into the whole question of the law concerning land drainage in England and Wales might well have waited until it had reported before bringing in...

    30. asked the Minister of Labour whether he has any information which would indicate the extent of unemployment in manufacturing industries in the United States?
  • Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance. 9 Mar 1925

    I should, for a few minutes, just like to intervene, because it struck me during that part of this Debate that T have been able to hear that this question of unemployment has been regarded far too much as a party question. After all, it is a national question. If one looks back to what the last Government did one may say that it did not seem find a very satisfactory solution of the problem....
