Mr Ernest Gardner

Former MP for Windsor

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.

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.

    I should like to say two or three words why I think this four years' penalty is very unjust. Of course, it is a platitude to say that we all condemn the capricious giver of notices to quit, but how many are there throughout the Kingdom? Does any hon. or right hon. Gentleman know of any, and, if so, how many? The other day we discussed the clause with regard to the mismanagement of estates,...
  • Orders of the Day — Agriculture Bill: Clause 7. — (Compensation for Dis- turbance.) 19 Nov 1920

    With all respect, I do not think I am doing that. However, I will deal now with Sub-section (7), which provides that the landlord is to state his reasons for giving the notice to quit. Everybody knows there may be many reasons, and good ones too, for giving notice—reasons which cannot be published. The result is the landlord does not give his reasons. If he gives notice to quit he comes...
  • Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Councils, etc.) Bill.: Clause 2. — (Duties of Councils of Agriculture.) 27 Nov 1919

    I beg to second the Amendment. I think it absolutely essential, if these councils are lo be of value, that their meetings should be held in public. I see no point in them holding them in any other way. It is useless to suppose for a moment that anything that goes on among ninety persons will do other than leak out in some form or other, and very likely in a very inaccurate form.
