Brigadier Christopher Peto

Former MP for North Devon

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.

  • Orders of the Day — Finance Bill 25 Apr 1955

    My hon. Friend said that forms were being prepared and that taxpayers in certain categories who had overpaid could ask the tax collector for the forms so that they could make their claims. Would not it be possible to instruct the authorities to send the forms to those people who require them without application having to be made?
  • Orders of the Day — Finance Bill 25 Apr 1955

    I think the hon. Member said that the deduction was made from the dependant's allowance. Would it not have been normal for the deduction to have been made from National Assistance?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Cotton Textile Industry (Deputation) 5 Apr 1955

    Is my right hon. Friend aware that a similar statement is much needed in respect of the glove industry?
