Former MP for Stretford
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.

The Committee which considered this Measure approved it as it left the Committee, and I am requested by that Committee to ask the House to pass this Measure as it is presented. We believe that, as far as greater safety to the inhabitants of Stoke are concerned, these provisions are necessary. With regard to Clause 107 dealing with the power to regulate omnibus routes, I will say at once that...
