Mr David Vaughan

Former MP for Forest of Dean

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.

    I can quite understand the right hon. Gentleman being anxious to wind up his speech with such a short explanation for reasons other than that of time, and I should not inflict myself upon the House but for the fact that for two-and-a-quarter years I had the honour of acting as secretary to the all-party Committee of this House, including Liberal Members who helped considerably in that work. I...
  • Disturbances, Liverpool. 24 Sep 1931

    I crave the indulgence of the House for a few moments because of my experience as chairman of a standing joint committee, and having had a good deal to do with the administration of the police in South Wales. If there was one argument for the National Government to remain in office, I agree that it would be that the present Home Secretary is very well adapted, by his toleration and...
  • Disturbances, Liverpool. 24 Sep 1931

    I was only trying to argue that the Home Secretary is responsible in this sense that he can, through the Home Office, appeal to the local police authorities as to the way they should handle the people in their areas. I recall an occasion when we on the Monmouth Standing Joint Committee implored the chief of police to handle the people through their trade union leaders—
