Mr Reginald Sorensen

Former MP for Leyton

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

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.

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Remand Homes and Approved Schools 19 Nov 1964

    asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the present increase in the number of those detained in remand homes and approved schools; and how many instances of corporal punishment have been recorded in those institutions in the last 12 months compared with 1962 and 1952.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Remand Homes and Approved Schools 19 Nov 1964

    Arising out of that reply, may I ask the hon. Lady whether she will look at this matter in view particularly of the steady increase in the number of cases of corporal punishment inflicted on these inmates, for although one knows that many of these inmates can be very provocative, nevertheless the incidence of corporal punishment regarding these young people seems to be rather an anachronism...
  • Orders of the Day — Schedule. — (Acts Continued.) 17 Nov 1964

    Do I understand the hon. Gentleman to suggest that coloured immigrants now working in London Transport are being "sweated" by being paid under the rates that the unions have established?
