Mr James Wellbeloved

Former MP for Bexley Erith and Crayford

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.

The hon. Gentleman has got it wrong. Praise...

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Greater London Council 23 Feb 1983

    Will the Secretary of State bear in mind that the case for abolition does not rest only on the lunatic antics of the Labour-controlled GLC and its desire to dish out lavish subsidies to organisations ranging from those who support gay tights to supporters of IRA bombers? Is he aware that the real case for abolition rests on the simple fact that no service provided by the GLC could not be...
