Former MP for Ilkeston
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.
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that no telephone or other form of communication is provided on the Doncaster by-pass to help motorists when breakdowns occur to obtain assistance, particularly at night; and if he will take steps to remedy this omission.
Can the Minister say how long it will be before this road is connected with the M.1? Will he remember that it is almost impossible at night to contact police cars and other people using the road, particularly if an accident occurs late at night? If he intends to install telephones or another form of communication on this road, will he get a move on quickly?
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give further consideration to the accommodation at the employment exchange at Ripley, Derbyshire, in view of the need to give a much longer period for the payment of benefits to avoid long queues in the street and secure more privacy at the counter.
