Mr Woodrow Wyatt

Former MP for Bosworth

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.

    asked the Prime Minister whether he will co-ordinate the activities of the Secretary of State for Social Services and the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity in order to reduce the adverse effects of influenza epidemics upon industry.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Industry (Influenza Epidemics) 16 Apr 1970

    As the Prime Minister has been singularly unlucky in reducing the number of days lost by strikes, which have actually doubled in their rate since last June when the Government abandoned their trade union legislation, would it not be a good idea to make an effort in this field where it is generally accepted that vaccination could reduce the number of days lost through 'flu' by about 30 per cent?
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Commission on Poverty 16 Apr 1970

    asked the Prime Minister whether he will recommend the appointment of a Royal Commission on Poverty.
