Dr John Worthington

Former MP for Forest of Dean

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.

Member in his mild...
  • Orders of the Day — Depressed Areas (Development and Improvement) Bill. 3 Dec 1934

    I feel that this Bill is a good one and not what the Amendment suggests. I think that it is likely to provide an effective attack on unemployment from a new angle, promising, not a cure, but at any rate some substantial relief where relief is most needed. I have listened to the speeches that have been made on the subject of the depressed areas, and particularly to that of my right hon. Friend...
  • Orders of the Day — Supply.: Forestry Commission. 3 Jul 1933

    I very seldom address the House, and I hope the Committee will bear with me for a few moments this afternoon. I find myself very much in agreement with the hon. Member for Gower (Mr. D. Grenfell), though I do not ask for a reduction of the Vote, as I should certainly like to see a larger sum provided. The hon. and gallant Member for Rye (Sir G. Courthope) and the right hon. Member for North...
