Former MP for Newbury
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.
43. asked the Attorney-General the number of magistrates for the county of Berkshire other than borough magistrates; how many of them are women; why there has been failure to appoint any women to the Bench since the present Government came into office; and why there should be such a wide difference between the number of men and women on the Bench in this county?
Will the Attorney-General say whether, in making further appointments for the county of Berkshire, the Lord Chancellor will take steps to appoint more women; and does he think it right and proper that only two women should be on the Bench for Berkshire?
39. asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will arrange that agricultural workers who have been in regular employ for three years shall have facilities for free education in agricultural colleges, and that those showing special knowledge and proficiency shall have such credit facilities as will enable them to start as small-holders?
