Mr Mark Woodnutt

Former MP for Isle of Wight

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.

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.

    May I seek your further guidance, Mr. Speaker? The hon. Member for Fife, West (Mr. William Hamilton) made most defamatory statements about me on Thursday evening, all of which were quite untrue. If he had read The Times on Saturday he would have seen that two of them had been refuted by The Sunday Times and Thomson Newspapers. The hon. Gentleman is obviously perpetuating this matter. I...
