Former MP for Totnes
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 Works (1) if he will arrange for the flag of St. George to be flown on all Government buildings in London on St. George's Day, 23rd April; (2) if he will arrange for the flag of St. George to be flown on all Government buildings in Scotland and Wales on St. George's Day, 23rd April.
Should we not take a little more pride in that flag which led all our arms to victory up to the time of the Armada, and should not St. George's Day give the Scots a chance of paying graceful homage to the senior partner in the Union, from whom they have reaped so many blessings? Indeed, should not the Welsh, too, pay tribute to the Mother Country under whose wing they have sheltered so...
In order that this matter may be put into proper perspective, will my hon. Friend consider publishing in the Monthly Digest of Statistics a six-monthly account of the progress of the £ since the end of the war?
