Mr Frank Gray

Former MP for Oxford

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.

    Had I made that charge I should have been the first to withdraw it, but I will call upon Lord Astor to withdraw it. Let me pass on to things that are not controversial. Can it be denied that traders' associations have their rules of compulsion to obtain funds which are applied in part to political purposes, and do you expect Members on this side to introduce legislation to relieve members of...
  • Orders of the Day — Trade Union Act (1913) Amendment Bill. 14 Mar 1924

    I am glad to find that my hon. Friend and myself are at one for once. I have charged 6s. 8d. for opening my mouth, but I have never got the other sum for closing it. The issue I wish to put, particularly to Members on the other side, is, which do you consider more detrimental to the country, that there should be compulsion to contribute to trade union funds to obtain money which may be used,...
