Former MP for Keighley
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 shall make the briefest possible contribution about amendment No. 10, to which I have added my name. I do not think that anybody would disagree with the objective of closing unsatisfactory tax loopholes. Nevertheless, I believe that it is a key precept of our system—indeed, of any truly democratic system—that legislation should not have a retroactive effect. Many people—rightly in my...
