Sir Alan McLean

Former MP for Norfolk South Western

There are currently votes on relevant topics that are not included in the summaries below. We are working on bringing these records up to date over the next few months.

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.

    The House has looked at the sugar-beet industry from many angles. I want to look at it from the point of view of those concerned in the agricultural industry, the farmers, smallholders and agricultural workers. It is a factor in the situation and not the only factor, but one that the House ought to consider. I believe that if this assistance to the sugar beet industry was suddenly...
  • Orders of the Day — British Sugar (Subsidy) Bill. 12 Jul 1935

    That is not practical. The Greene Committee do suggest potatoes. But this House knows perfectly well that we are already producing all the potatoes we can profitably produce, and that in the last year or two we have had to get rid of the surplus by riddling out the small potatoes, and last year some of the excessively big potatoes. If we turn to other root crops such as mangolds, swedes,...
  • Orders of the Day — British Sugar (Subsidy) Bill. 12 Jul 1935

    The rents vary enormously as my hon. Friend knows. A smallholding in a rich fen district is much more valuable than a smallholding in what we call the high land in Norfolk. The Committee point out that it is a question of the smallholding being given up and the impossibility of letting. At a time when Members in all parts of the House wish to see a great increase in smallholdings, it seems...
