Sir Albert Bennett

Former MP for Nottingham Central

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.

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.

I think the lace trade in this country has slightly improved. Since the Safeguarding Duty was put on, if I am correct in my figures, the domestic business has...
  • Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Repeal of lace duty.) 18 Jul 1927

    I am sure that even that is an over-statement of the case. I do not believe that to-day there is any industry in the country which is more efficient that the lace industry, or one which has had to struggle against greater difficulties.
