Mr Arnold Williams

Former MP for Sowerby

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.

    Had I taken part in the Debate on the Motion of the hon. Member for York (Sir J. Marriott) last evening, I should have stressed the fact that I was not concerned in the amount of the expenditure so much as in the question of whether the money was well spent. I am really concerned as to whether we get full value for our money. I think, therefore, it is time somebody in this Debate spoke from...
  • Orders of the Day — Supply.: Shipbuilding, Repairs, Maintenance, etc. — Personnel. 8 May 1924

    I am sorry if I have misrepresented the hon. and gallant Gentleman, but I think he will agree, by the time I have finished, that what I have said is correct. On the total Estimates I find there is an expenditure of £4,500,000 more than in 1914–15, and bearing in mind the change in value of our currency, we are apt to think this fact means that the Navy Estimates are satisfactory. I do...
  • Orders of the Day — Supply.: Shipbuilding, Repairs, Maintenance, etc. — Personnel. 8 May 1924

    I am very glad to have that explanation, but I do not think it explains the huge difference. I should not agree with that in the ordinary business way. We have a 75 per cent. increase in the wages bill and 18 per cent. reduction in the cost of materiel. That does not explain the difference. There is one other point I should like to make. There are actually 548 policemen required for eight...
