Dr Sidney Peters

Former MP for Huntingdonshire

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs have been less able to vote in Parliament, and this will be reflected 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 endorse what my hon. Friends say, living as I do in the countryside. There is one thing I would like my right hon. and learned Friend to bear in mind.

Then we have...

    I would like to support what my hon. Friend has said, but I would also like to call attention to the new Clause, later on the Paper, which I propose should be incorporated in the Bill. There I seek to bring into the Bill an allowance for a housekeeper in cases where persons suffer from blindness or chronic ill-health, such as rheumatoid arthritis and so on, people actually crippled, often,...
  • Orders of the Day — Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Bill: Clause 3. — (Extension of duties of local authorities and joint boards as to water supply.) 8 Jun 1944

    In sparsely populated areas where there is practically no water undertaking at all, how are these horticultural and agricultural buildings ever going to get water? The Parliamentary Secretary said this must be left to water undertakings. Where there are none, I cannot see them getting any water at all under the Bill or the White Paper or anything else.
