Lieut-Colonel Maurice Alexander

Former MP for Southwark South East

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.

    If that be so, then surely there is no hardship if those people are given that right and get a jury when they ask for it. One looks at Clause 2, and cannot help seeing that people have that right. If one looks at paragraphs (b), (c) and (d) of Subsection (1), one sees that it is distinctly stated that if any party to the action asks for a jury, he shall have it.
  • Orders of the Day — ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE BILL [Lords]. 27 Jul 1923

    In Clause 2, Sub-section (1, d). It reads: Any cause, not being a cause to which paragraph (a), paragraph (b) or paragraph (c) of this Section applies, shall, if any party thereto makes an application, in that behalf, be tried with a jury, unless in the opinion of the Court or a Judge the cause is more fit to be tried without a jury. An hon. Member near me on the Labour Benches says that...
