Mr Harold Soref

Former MP for Ormskirk

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.

  • Grenada 5 Feb 1974

    In view of this latest example of granting premature independence, will my right hon. Friend give an assurance that none of the hard-pressed taxpayers' money will be spent on the Civil Service in Grenada, which he has assured us is a local matter as we have no hand in Grenada's internal affairs?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Rhodesia 30 Jan 1974

    Does my right hon. Friend agree that in the strategic interests of our NATO allies it would be preferable to be able to buy chrome from Rhodesia rather than from Soviet Russia or, worse still, chrome purchased by Soviet Russia from Rhodesia for resale to America at an enhanced price?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Rhodesia 19 Dec 1973

    Is it not a fact that those who are interned in Rhodesia are not seeking a settlement but are seeking to have armed revolution in that country and to exterminate the white population?
