Professor Archibald Hill

Former MP for Cambridge University

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.

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Bread (Wheat Extraction Rate) 21 Mar 1945

    asked the Minister of Food how many more tons of wheat are required annually in the United Kingdom to mill flour of 80 per cent. extraction than of 85 per cent. extraction; and whether, in view of the grave short- age of food in Europe, and the admitted fact that the 80 per cent. is no more nourishing than the 85 per cent., this extra wheat will be saved.
