Mr Arthur Henderson

Former MP for Clay Cross

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.

Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — League of Nations.: Poland (Ukrainian Minority). 31 Jul 1931

    I received yesterday the letter to which the hon. and gallant Member refers. I shall, of course, give full consideration to the proposals put forward in that letter, but it would be premature to say, on the day after its receipt, what course of action it may appear desirable to take in the questions which it raises.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Vienna University (Disorders). 20 Jul 1931

    I have received a report of certain disorders which occurred last month at Vienna University, but, so far as I am aware, have not been repeated. The authorities seem to have been successful in restoring order, and I have no reason to suppose that the matter will be brought before the League of Nations.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — China. 13 Jul 1931

    Since the civil war ended nine months ago, the general military situation in North China has been quiet. It does not appear that disbandment has yet made much progress.
