Dr Michael Winstanley

Former MP for Hazel Grove

As a result of COVID-19, some MPs have been less able to vote in Parliament, and this will be reflected 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.

Gentleman aware, further, that the disproportionately small number of women Members is eloquent testimony to...

    As one who believes that many patients receive better treatment and better nursing care in general wards than they do in private accommodation, may I ask the right hon. Lady whether she is aware that in areas where the NHS flourishes—there are many—and in which the doctor-patient relationship is adequate, the hospitals are adequately staffed and the waiting lists are short, private...
