Mr John Profumo

Former MP for Stratford-on-Avon

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.

  • Troops, Nairobi (Incident) 6 May 1963

    Indiscipline is always to be deplored, but the use of the word "riot" gives an entirely misleading impression. A riot involves a crowd indulging in an outbreak of lawlessness, and that is not what happened, according to what I have been told so far, in this case. I have no further details of the motives in the murder of Private Jones, although, so far as we can ascertain, there is absolutely...
  • Troops, Nairobi (Incident) 6 May 1963

    I have no information, even now, about any dissatisfaction with conditions in or around Nairobi which could possibly have led to what occurred on Saturday night. I am glad to have the opportunity of emphasising that so far as I know—and the House will understand that these are rather early days—there were no organised bands of large numbers of soldiers, as has been reported in certain...
