Former MP for St Ives
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.
I presume that the committee to which the hon. Member refers is that which was appointed by the Board of Trade in 1916 to consider the position of the iron and steel trades after the War. Since the report of that committee was issued there has been a greater degree of co-operation between the units of the iron and steel industry for the purchase and distribution of iron-ore, both from Empire...
I believe the granting of leases for the mining of iron-ore in Australia is in the keeping of the Australian Government.
No payments of subsidy for voyages or parts of voyages carried out in 1937 have been made. In this connection I would refer the hon. Member to paragraph 4 of the Memorandum on the Financial Resolution providing for the Continuance of the Tramp Shipping Subsidy (Cmd. 5357).
