Former MP for Aldershot
All MPs could vote remotely through an online voting tool. Votes cast remotely are shown as normal on the TheyWorkForYou voting record.
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.
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.

In nearly every quarter of the Committee there has been a full realisation of the intense...
I will allow my hon. Friend to interrupt me on a question of fact but not on a question of opinion. I listened to his speech with great enjoyment and I hope he will listen to mine, although I am afraid I cannot promise him the same amount of enjoyment. My hon. Friend made no attempt to deal with the national financial and economic problems but gave a brilliant lecture on the wickedness or...
I would say with all respect to my hon. Friend that it is very easy for those who are associated with literature to regard their profession as so important and sacrosanct that it ought to be treated differently from any other form of activity. That, I submit to the Committee, was the plea which my hon. Friend made.
